Are Parmesan rinds edible?

Just been reading one of my Nigel Slater books and seen that he has several recipes to use up Parmesan rinds. I've always eaten them though - it's the best bit, all chewy and yum! But now I'm wondering whether you're not supposed to eat them!

DH (italian chef) bakes them in the oven til they go soft and gooey and gobbles them up!

Eat asap as they go hard again.

I always eat up any cheese rind, including stilton, tis the best bit.

Drop them in my ds's purees (then take them out) apparently they just flavour them a bit

I eat them too! But also freeze and put in stews as needed.

what is the rind made of? (sneak preview of what moondog had/is having for dinner?)

Dunno really,hard cheese.

Have lived off bloody rice, dahl and chicken for four days as have been on road trip to remote parts of Bangladesh with dh and kids.

Paddy fields so so beautiful.
But..imagine rice X3 a day for years and years.

I'm allergic to parmesan. All other cheese fine, though!

Hmm Korean? Lots of fish and seaweed? There was a Korean supermarket near where I lived in California and seem to recall the smell of seaweed!
