Coming from the locally-based cuisine of the west of France, the fouée is a little ball of dough, cooked in the oven and stuffed while still hot, according to each region, with rillettes, butter, or cheese.

According to popular tradition, once a week the family gathers by the fire for an evening of fouées.

While waiting for the oven to be hot enough to bake the bread, the fouées were prepared with the rest of the bread dough in order to know if the oven was hot enough.

Bel endroit qui montre la face cachée des châteaux de la Loire avec la vie des paysans et l origine de la fameuse pierre de tuffeau ! À ne pas louper !
