Making rye bread / Grimentz

Take part in this unusual activity offered in winter and summer in St-Luc and Grimentz, by making a loaf of traditional rye bread and baking it in a communal oven.

Making rye bread
Rye bread, an ancient tradition...
Rye has been grown in Valais for centuries. The mountainous land and weather make it a suitable place to grow rye. Rye bread is an important regional ancient tradition.  In the past, people made rye bread that could be kept for several months: a village's communal oven was lit only 2 or 3 times a year for the inhabitants to bake their stock of bread.

Nowadays, it is possible to revive this tradition by taking part in the "Making rye bread" activity organised in St-Luc and Grimentz
