Eating Your Curds And Whey As children we repeated beloved nursery rhymes by rote, frequently clueless as to their meanings. One of the most popular was Little Miss Muffet, who sat on her tuffet eating her curds and whey. What on earth were curds and whey, much less a tuffet? Not wanting to appear foolish, we refrained from asking our teachers (who probably didn't know either) or our mothers (likewise). We kind of figured that a tuffet was a little stool, but the curds and whey stumped us.

Ancient Greek cuisine was known for its simplicity and founded on the "Mediterranean triad" of wheat, olive oil, and wine, with a strong emphasis on fresh fish, where meat (except for lamb) takes a backseat. First to use oregano and other savory spices for seasoning, thin phyllo pastry dough and an abundance of olives, they introduced neighbors Italy, France and Spain to staples like bread, olive oil, lentils and almonds. Run don't walk to the nearest authentic Greek restaurant and do some serious exploring. Opa!
