I Love My Readers.

Back in March 2010, I experienced my first Kimmelweck rolls at the Outer Banks Taste of the Beach. I knew right then and there that I would have to make these little gems. And I did. Rosie's Kimmelweck Rolls. Oh my. Check out my Beef on Weck. Tonight, almost two years later, I received a comment on the Kimmelweck post from the Great Great Grand Niece of William Wahr, the German baker who brought the Kimmelweck to Buffalo. debcafferty has left a new comment on your post "Rosie Makes Kimmelweck Rolls.": William Wahr is my Great Great Grand Uncle!!!! No kidding. He immigrated from Germany in 1882. His sister, Eva married my Great Great Grandfather, Frederick J. Schraft. The recipe was lost through the generations but I will be trying this one!!! Debra Cafferty Buffalo, New York I thank you Debra Cafferty of Buffalo, New York for responding. I hope I did your Great Great Grand Uncle proud.
