The ancestral oven

From St. Jean Baptiste, on Saturday and Sunday, our guides start baking delicious molasses cookies in our nearly 300-year-old oven.

During the rebuilding of the miller’s house in 1978, the bread oven was rebuilt using the original furnace stones of the house of 1785. All weekends, fine weather only, guides cook molasses cookies made from local ingredients and according to the methods of the past.

Please check the schedule to know when the baking of the cookies takes place.
