Family of the Good Name and Good Taste
Some say “Shem-Tov” and others, “Shemtov.” [In fact it is possible that our family name was at one point “Yom Tov,” but what’s in a name?]
While we don’t even agree on how to spell our last name, one thing we do all agree on: good food trumps all.
We are a tribal bunch with roots in vastly different parts of the globe – Iraq to Poland, Petach Tikva to Harbord Street – who have learned to bring the cultural influences of our families into creative expression in our cooking. Like our food, we are alternately spicy and sweet, and a mix of many flavors that coalesce in the kitchen.
