Based on a recipe from Allard, this bistro favorite calls for a rich sauce, made by simmering green olives, herbs, and stock, to accompany roast duck.

Pairing note: The Chateau Real Martin Cotes de Provence 2005 ($22) has flavors of cherry, prune, and tobacco that pair very well with duck and with this dish's robust sauce in particular. —M.P.
