Place stock in medium sized saucepan and place on the back of the stove and bring to a simmer.
Meanwhile pour olive oil and half the butter into a heavy based casserole or deep frying pan over medium heat.
Add onions, garlic and celery and allow to cook for 5 to 10 minutes or until the onions are soft.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery.
