"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Preheat oven to 375. Heat cream, stock, butter, garlic, bay leaf, red pepper flakes, some nutmeg, and salt and pepper to taste in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 15 minutes.

Layer an 8 x 12 baking dish alternately with potatoes and 3/4 cup of the cheese to form about 6 layers, finishing with potatoes.

Carefully strain heated cream over assembled potatoes, then sprinkle potatoes with remaining 1/4 cup of cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper, cover dish with aluminum foil, and bake for 45 minutes. Remove aluminum foil and continue baking until potatoes are tender and gratin is golden and bubbling, about 15 minutes. Alow gratin to rest for at least 15 minutes before serving.
