- Heat for 7-9 minutes, until the cream comes to a boil and remove from heat.
- Pass the mixture through a sieve into a bowl and set aside to cool.
- Fill a pot halfway with water, place over high heat and bring to a boil.
- In the meantime, slice the potatoes into 0.5 cm rounds with a sharp knife. You can also use a mandolin to make sure all of the slices are equally thick.

- Then remove the parchment and bake for another 10 minutes, until the potatoes turn golden.
- When ready, remove from oven and set aside to cool for 30-40 minutes at room temperature.
- The cooler the dish is, the easier it will be to cut into nice pieces without destroying the layers of vegetables.
