MADAME CARTET'S POTATO GRATIN
from "Bistro Cooking" by Patricia Wells

There are some recipes one can never have too many of in one's repertoire. And potato gratin is one of them. This is one of the easiest potato gratins I know, cooking in just under one hour, a simple but full-flavored blend of potatoes, fresh cream, garlic, and freshly grated Gruyère cheese. Twice each day, Thérèse Nouaille, of Paris's tiny neighborhood bistro Cartet, prepares this gratin for her steady customers: Make it yourself and you'll understand why they keep coming back!

4 to 6 servings
INGREDIENTS (CLICK TO BUY)

1 garlic clove
2 pounds baking potatoes, such as russets, peeled and very thinly sliced

1 cup heavy cream

PREPARATION

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
2. Thoroughly rub a shallow, 6-cup porcelain gratin dish with the garlic. Layer half of the potatoes in the dish. Sprinkle with half of the cheese and then half of the cream. Sprinkle with salt. Add another layer, using the rest of the ingredients.
3. Bake, uncovered, until the gratin is crisp and golden on the top, from 50 to 60 minutes. Serve immediately.
