About Us

When we started La Cigale in 1997, our aim was to share with New Zealanders our passion for things French – French hospitality, food and wine, fashion and home décor.

Most of what we envisioned 20 years ago has come to fruition. However, like any business, we have to keep developing and innovating. Hence the introduction of our online shopping service. Even with this, France remains our inspiration – especially for our frozen gourmet ready meals. Frozen meals like ours are hugely popular throughout France and especially amongst busy apartment dwellers with limited time and cooking facilities.

With a stock of these in your freezer, you can have delicious French classics such as Beef Bourguignon, Duck à l’Orange, Tarragon Chicken and Lamb Navarin on your table ready to eat within minutes.
