Wine Braised Duck Legs with Pommes d’Anna

This dish is one of the most delicious things I have made in ages, and I am really proud of how the flavors came together.

I loved a lot of Ducasse’s recipe and was inspired by his flavor profile, but have simplified this recipe to make it easier for the home cook.
