About the Recipe

I got told off by hundreds of French people on TikTok that this was in fact a Potato Gratin and absolutely NOT a Potato Dauphinois. Sacre bleu! Here is my luxurious Potato Gratin. It's creamy, it's cheesy, it's got potatoes in it. Whats not to love? Go on, give it a go. You know you want to.


  • 500g potatoes

  • 500ml double cream

  • 3 cloves of garlic

  • 150g Gruyère (or cheddar)

  • 50g Parmesan

  • 2 pinches ground nutmeg

  • 2 pinches smoked paprika

  • 1 pinch of cayenne pepper

  • A few cracks of black pepper


  1. Heat oven to 180 Celsius

  2. Tip 500ml double cream, garlic cloves, spices, and one third of the cheese into a saucepan and bring to a simmer

  3. Slice potatoes finely, about 5mm thick, and add them to the cream. Simmer while gently stirring for 3 mins until just cooked

  4. Remove the potatoes with a slotted spoon and place in a wide shallow ovenproof dish so that they are about 5cm in depth

  5. Pour over the cream so the potatoes are just about submerged

  6. Scatter over the remaining cheese then bake for around 30 mins until the potatoes are soft and browned
