Potato Gratin of Gordon Ramsay

בס"ד



  So last month we've 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 on a restaurant.
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 mentiond on the recipe The Gratin came out terrific!

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

Preparation
Preheat oven to 200 degrees celsius.
Heat a skillet with cream, milk, bay leaf and garlic clove untill 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 potatos with a mandolin and start assembling the dish
Sprinkle with 1/3 of the chedder cheese on the bottom of the pan
Spread potatos 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 potatos so it covers 2/3 of the potatos
Sprinkle with more cheese and bake between 35-40 minutes until the potatos are browned
or until they are soft when checking with a knife

Some notes:
I didn't use the bay leaf and insted of using a garlic clove, i've used a mashed garlic
clove. As i mentiond earlier, i doubled the amount of potatos 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!
