Raymond Blanc’s Gratin Dauphinois

Layers of potato cooked in a rich garlic cream with Gruyère cheese. What more could you ask for from Raymond Blanc’s Gratin Dauphinois? From his book, My Kitchen Table, this recipe uses only six ingredients. Raymond says; “the potato variety is important. I find that Desiree and Belle de Fontenay work best, and both are usually available in supermarkets”.
