      "Weck" is a version of a kaiser roll, but with caraway seeds and kosher salt on top. It is

      cookbooks that haven't been translated yet, that I can't say that there are none. However,
      medieval Germany had a Baker's Guild that was very strong and it is possible that all the old
      recipes were never written down, but passed on from generation to generation by word of mouth and
      by teaching.
