Baking rye bread


Traditional bread baking in the Val d'Hérens

Rye bread baking takes place in several villages in Val d’Hérens: in Nax, where the village oven, built in 1912, has fortunately survived as a witness of the past, and in Mase, with its Wheat and Bread Confraternity (Confrérie du Blé et du Pain). The baking begins at 7:30 am and the bread is sold at the oven starting from 3 pm. Those who wish to buy bread are requested to pre-order the desired quantity by the Wednesday evening before the baking.
