Salamander’s General Store “was opened to provide North Forkers access to made-from-scratch takeout food and world-class imported ingredients,” according to owner Claudia Helinski. She uses local ingredients whenever possible in preparing a broad selection of international soups and salads, legendary made-to-order fried chicken and light entrées, which can be eaten at tables outside on the patio.

Some of Claudia’s inventive and delicious soups include classic tomato gazpacho; corn, cheese and green chili chowder; spring pea and watercress bisque; and Japanese miso with tofu.

Salamander’s offers French jam; Spanish paella ingredients including pimento and special rice; Japanese sushi fixings and Satur Farms produce, local free range eggs, a wide variety of cheeses, loose tea and tea accessories.

Ready-to-go dinners include rich and creamy mac ‘n 4 cheeses, chicken pot pie and asparagus and gruyere quiche. Side dishes include purple coleslaw and sweet potato fries.

The bakery produces mouth-watering freshly-baked cakes and tarts made on the premises and fresh doughnuts, to go with a choice of fresh-ground coffees.

Full service catering is available.
