DARE, vol. III, which should be available in your local bookstores in
December, just in time for Christmas buying (plug, plug), has an entry under
'kimmelweck' (with a x-ref to 'beef on weck' vol. I). Defined as "A caraway
roll, used esp for a beef sandwich," its label is wNY, esp Buffalo. The
earliest quote is from 1952, Marian Tracy, Coast to Coast Cookery.
ok, but i think today that the salt is the defining characteristic,
since we go to the bakery and order "kimmelwecks without caraway" and
get rolls with salt on top. i didn't know that kimmelwecks could
have caraway until wegman's started selling them, since the bakery we
got them from in lewiston had ones w/o caraway called "kimmelweck".
