Michael Tusk cooks these potatoes with spring garlic heads, which have not yet formed a papery skin and are very juicy and delicate. If you can find them, add up to 1 cup of thin slices to the potatoes in place of the regular garlic in the recipe.

1 cup Niçoise olives (6 ounces)
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil

2 large garlic cloves, thinly sliced
Kosher or sea salt
How to Make It
Preheat the oven to 375°. In a roasting pan, toss the potatoes with the onion, olives, olive oil, wine, bay leaves and garlic and season with salt. Cover with foil and bake for about 1 hour, or until just tender. Uncover, stir well and bake for 30 minutes longer, or until the potatoes are very tender and lightly glazed. Season with salt and serve.
The potatoes can be peeled early and held in cold water.
