Birewecke is a fruit bread from the Alsace Region of France bulging with dried pears, apples, plums, figs, raisins, almonds and walnuts which have been marinated in kirsch, then eaten a week after it has been baked.

Alsace Region lies in the north east of France between the Rhine and the mountains of the Vosges, sharing borders with Germany and Switzerland. Alsace has at different times in history been a territory of both France and Germany and the influences of both countries are reflected in its cuisine. Their variety of dishes have evolved partly from an abundance of local produce and partly from traditional dishes brought from Poland, Germany, Russia and Austria, which have influenced Alsatian cooking.
