A unique outdoor bread oven

Take this opportunity to discover our outdoor bread oven. Often called a “summer oven”, it was made of clay in keeping with a traditional artisanal method developed in the 17th century. The inner shape of the vault rises gradually from the door to the back of the oven in order to ensure that the fire burns well. A small roof protects it from bad weather. Once the oven is thoroughly heated with a wood fire, the ashes are removed. When it reaches an adequate temperature, a batch of several loaves of bread is put in to bake. This baking process takes about 30 minutes

End the day on a musical note!

In the afternoon, we invite you to immerse yourself in the musical ambiance of New France with a performance by Ensemble Claude-Gervaise. After enjoying an ancestral loaf, come relive the history of Montreal through the magic of music! To learn more about this activity, click here.
