  • 400 ml/ 1 1/2 cups double cream/heavy cream
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 fresh rosemary sprig
  • 1 fresh bay leaf
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 6 medium potatoes
  • 50g/1/4 cup Comté cheese grated or Cheddar


  • Preheat the oven to 450F/220C
  • Slice your washed and unpeeled potatoes thinly with a mandoline slicer or with a sharp knife and put them in a bowl filled with cold water, set aside.
  • Pour cream in a small saucepan and add fresh rosemary, a bay leaf, salt and a peeled garlic clove cut lengthwise. Slowly bring it to a boil to allow the cream to get infused with herbs and garlic. It should take about 7-10 minutes on low heat.
  • Butter a 9" round pan and arrange well-drained potatoes slices in layers. Then pour hot cream over the potatoes while reserving 1/4 cup of the cream.
  • Cover with foil and cook in the preheated oven for 45 minutes.
  • Take the foil off and test for doneness with a knife, which should pierce them easily.
  • Change the oven setting to broil/grill. Pour the rest of the cream over the potatoes and sprinkle with grated cheese.
  • Broil/Grill for 2 more minutes until the cheese is bubbly and slightly browned on top.
