Potato gratin; 

1kg Maris piper potatoes
400ml whipping cream
2 cloves of garlic sliced
½ an onion finely sliced
2tsp Maldon salt

Peel the potatoes and slice very thinly on a mandolin, place into a large bowl and set aside.
Place the cream, garlic, onions and salt into a pan. Place over high heat and bring to the boil. As soon as the cream comes to the boil remove from the heat and pour all of the mixture over the potatoes. Stir the potatoes and cream together until all of the potatoes have are completely cover with the cream.
Rub a baking dish with the melted butter, making sure it is well covered.
Start to layer the potatoes in the dish, after every layer spoon over some of the onion and a little of the cream. Continue until all of the potatoes all of the potatoes have been used and the dish is full.
Cover with tin foil and bake for 45-50mins or until the potatoes are soft. Remove the tin foil and cover with grated cheddar cheese and bake for a further 10-15mins or until the cheese has a lovely golden brown glaze.

They are now ready to serve.
