Recently, my mother-in-law, also known as Viv, was at the Larchmont Farmer's Market here in LA, and couldn't resist buying us a box of 5 large cheese crackers (yummy, yes, but at $8 they were no bargain). When she gave them to us I told her they were known in Italy as frico. What is a frico you may ask? Basically, it's grated parmesean cheese baked on a cookie sheet which melts in the oven and then cools to become crispy, light "crackers". The best part is that it only takes minutes to whip up and kids LOVE it!

There are a lot of fun ways to serve frico. While it's still warm you can mold the pieces into all kinds of shapes. You can drape them over the bottom of a bowl until they firm up into little cups and then fill them with grapes or olives; fold them over a rolling pin and put strawberries inside; roll them into a tuille or let them cool flat and place on a bowl of soup or eat them just as they are. No matter what you decide to do, they're fun to make with kids and even better to eat!
