Directions:
Heat oven to 450°.

Rub the garlic all over the inside of the heavy gratin dish, then butter the dish well and set aside. Slice the potatoes and turnips as thinly as possible, ideally with a mandoline. Toss the slices with salt and layer them in the gratin dish. Bake until softened, about 20 to 30 minutes. Stir while baking to be sure they don’t stick. Remove from oven and pour the cream over the potatoes and turnips. Spread the cheese on top and return to oven. Continue baking until cream thickens and top is browned, about 30 minutes. Serve hot.
