parmesan crisps are nice --- grate it up fine and place small amounts on baking tray and cook in hot oven for 3-4 mins until crisp around edges -- lovely with glass of wine...

if you wrap it tightly & keep it in the fridge it'll last for ages. i stick parmesan in everything though....

er my italian cousin advocates cutting a nice big block of the "skin" off about 1 cm thick, giving it a good scrape (on the bit where the "writing" is) and giving it to ds to chew on. Kids love it, great for any new teeth, though does get a bit smelly! Apparently they used to drill a hole in a piece and hang it around the child's neck for them to chew on all day....

Take chicken breast strips, dip in egg, then grated parmesan cheese, roast in oven for 15-20 mins, chicken nuggets!
Or JO has a recipe for fish dipped in egg, then parmesan cheese, then fried.

if you grate it finely and use it as a crust on grilled salmon steaks it works well... or very simple - just stir it in to cooked pasta with basil or coriander, and some olive oil and black pepper...can add mushrooms, asparagus, tuna or whatever...

make a risotto?

Love the idea of using it as a teether, Loochloo.

Wilkinsons sell really cheap blocks of parmesan-£1.99 verses Sainsburys same size for £4.50.............

I have to confess that when I saw ds having a good ol chew of his I tried some too, and you know it really is quite tasty...
Does make you smell though!

I can find a way to make ANYTHING calorific.... this is my salad:

Mixed lettuce leaves (with lots of fresh parsley and basil),

generous squeeze of lemon juice

A glug of balsamic vinegar

A handful of salted capers

One chopped spring onion or shallot

(all nice and low fat and healthy so far eh?? )

then..... a HUGE glug of Olive oil with garlic

...and loads of grated parmesan!!!

It's amazing, trust me... and goes with anything.... we had it tonight with Swedish meatballs!

mmmmm, toothache. That sounds like my kind of salad.
