 So last month we celebrated Shavuot and on that specific holiday, we eat dairy foods.
I've been longing to prepare a gratin, ever since I've tasted a good one at a restaurant.
I Came across Gordon Ramsey's recipe and with few mild changes headed off to the kitchen.
I've added some Kashkaval cheese and more potatos then mentioned on the recipe and the Gratin came out terrific!

Ingredients:
a bit olive oil to grease the pan
200ml milk
200ml cream
bay leaf
garlic clove
kilo peeled potatos
200g cheddar cheese
salt and pepper

Preparation
Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
Heat a skillet with cream, milk, bay leaf and garlic clove until bubbles appear on the scale pan.
Then turn off the heat and leave to cool
After cooling, pass through a sieve to remove the bay leaf and garlic clove. Cut the potatoes with a mandolin and start assembling the dish. Sprinkle with 1/3 of the cheddar cheese on the bottom of the pan.
Spread potatoes over the cheese and season with salt and pepper generously
Continue assembling the layers as mentioned and finish with the cheese layer.
Pour the cream and milk mixture over the potatoes so it covers 2/3 of the potatoes.
Sprinkle with more cheese and bake between 35-40 minutes until the potatoes are browned or until they are soft when checking with a knife

Some notes:
I didn't use the bay leaf and instead of using a garlic clove, I've used a mashed garlic clove. As i mentioned earlier, i doubled the amount of potatoes and added Kashkaval cheese. I should have doubled the cream and milk mixture, but although i didn't it still came out very very tasty!
