Making rye bread / Grimentz

Making a loaf of traditional rye bread and baking it in a communal oven form part of this unusual activity, which is offered in both winter and summer at Grimentz and St-Luc

Rye bread, an ancient tradition...
Rye has been grown in Valais for centuries, and baking rye bread is a fundamental element of the canton's ancient traditions. The mountainous terrain and extremes of temperature make it a good place to grow rye. In the past, people made rye bread that could be kept for several months: a village's communal oven was lit 2 or 3 times a year, and the inhabitants came there to bake their stock of bread.

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