La Cigale Recipes and Stories from the Family Who Brought a Slice of France to New Zealand

By Elizabeth Lind

Signed for ex-owner

Part recipe book, part food and travel memoir, part business story, this beautifully illustrated book tells the story of a Kiwi family who brought a slice of France to New Zealand. A bustling French-style market. Fresh produce from local growers. Cheeses, cured meats, baguettes and pastries. Rainbow-coloured macarons and fragrant crepes, French clothing and soaps. A night-time bistro serving hearty French-provincial dishes. Just how did this slice of France find its way to the central Auckland suburb of Parnell? When Mike and Elizabeth Lind took their two small daughters to Paris in 1997, they were looking for a new direction. Their love of food and of France led them to start what was to become a thriving business. This book tells the story of La Cigale and those of the Linds’ stall-holders, and shares the food experiences and recipes they’ve developed along the way.
