Preparation:  
To make the potatoes:
In a small saucepan combine Olive Oil from Spain and garlic. Cook over low heat for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool. When cool discard the garlic.
Boil potatoes until fork tender; drain. Return potatoes to pot to dry. Mash potatoes leaving some chunks. Stir in 3 tablespoons garlic, Olive Oil from Spain, milk and cheese; season with salt and pepper. When cool enough to handle, form potatoes into small round cakes, about 2 inches in diameter. In a small bowl, beat egg with 1 tablespoon water. Dip each cake into egg mixture, then into breadcrumbs. Refrigerate at least ½ hour or overnight.
Pour enough light Olive Oil from Spain into a heavy skillet to cover the bottom with 1/4”of oil; set over medium heat. When the oil is hot pan-fry potato cakes until golden brown, 1 – 2 minutes on each side. Drain on paper towels. Top each potato cake with a dollop of herb cream; serve warm.
