Like many of the hamlets of the Pays de La Meije, the Chazelet has kept the tradition of "black bread" by making twice a year "La fête du pain" in the traditional banal oven of the village, which you can visit during the summer period.
Descriptif Le Chazelet bread oven visit
A visit to the oven will take you into the pure tradition of "black bread" by making you discover the vestiges of the tools used at the time for its preparation. Your host will also share with you the little manufacturing secrets, still used today in August (the 15th) as well as in November.
Since the 15th century, the tradition of the Bread Festival continues thanks to the inhabitants of the village.
This very special bread is kneaded with rye flour and boiling water. The breads are then cut and weigh around 5 kg and then bake for 7 hours. All this work is done by hand with the ancestral recipe.
