Ishay Govender-Ypma

Ishay Govender-Ypma is an award-winning freelance food and travel journalist who wisely abandoned a career in commercial law in the pursuit of cultural immersion and air miles. Now she wanders the earth gathering stories, ingredients and second-hand books that threaten to take over her house. Home is Cape Town, for a few weeks at a stretch. Ishay launched her writing career with a series of tweets in 2010 and has a fondness for the micro-blogging platform. This gave life to the  Food and the Fabulous® website which was awarded a prize for best South African food and wine blog in 2011.
