Preheat oven to 200C and spray a large baking / casserole dish with a non stick cooking spray, and set aside.
In a large frying pan, melt butter over low heat then add onions and garlic. Cook for 4-5 minutes, until tender. Sprinkle flour over mixture, and cook, stirring, for a further 2 minutes.
Pour vegetable stock into pan and stir, adding salt and pepper, seasoning and cream. Cook, stirring, until thickened, then remove from heat and add 2 cups of cheddar cheese. Stir through.
Layer ⅓ of the potato slices in baking dish, then top with ⅓ of the sour cream and ⅓ of the cheese sauce, then 1/3 of the parmesan and remaining cheddar.
Repeat the process with the remaining two thirds, then cover with foil and bake for 1 1/2 – 2 hours. For the last 20 minutes, remove the foil and bake uncovered until the cheese browns.
