How to make an edible bowl from cheese.

Want something unique to plate your pasta, perhaps a taco salad, or maybe just a regular garden salad? Try making your own edible cheese bowl by frying, forming, and cooling cheese into a crispy and edible dish. The recipe became very popular after Anthony Bourdain's Rome episode at Roma Sparta, where Cacio e Pepe (pasta) was served in a similar edible cheese bowl.

The follow instructable was shared with me by an individual with the username A. Person, in response to a comment left by Jamy who says "I love to fry cheese in a pan like that".

Me too. If you fry cheese in a small pan and then carefully lift it out with a spatula and lay it over a bowl as a mold, you can make a crispy edible salad bowl to impress your dinner guests

Not a terribly inspiring salad, but you get the idea. It goes nicely with mayo rather than dressing.
