Traditional ovens

Pays du St-Bernard

At that time, each village had its own bread oven. Rye and wheat grew in abundance, providing the raw material necessary to make bread.

The communal oven was available to the inhabitants for the preparation and cooking of this basic food. Families would gather to work for several days in a row. A batch of bread would provide for a family’s needs for several months. The bread was carefully stored and kept in the attics.

Some bread ovens have been preserved, maintained and restored.

Among all the varieties of breads currently on offer, this artisanal bread offers an incomparable taste.
