By doing this, there will be a lovely garlic taste (the garlic should be in contact with the dish, so that its flavor sticks to the sides and the bottom). Then you have to put a good , relatively thick, layer of potato slices at the bottom of the dish. Pour-in a third of the cream; then sprinkle about one third of the Comte cheese over , on top. After that, you may or may not want to add a bit of salt and black pepper. So , now that the base layer is done, you can now repeat layers twice more.

The baking takes about 60 minutes, so just about 1 hour. You will notice the cheese changing into a brownish colour, but it must not be too dark.
