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 (follow on Instagram) 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.

Find her stories in Saveur, Food & Wine, Extra Crispy, Nat Geo, Food 52, The National (UAE), Literary Hub, TASTE, Mail & Guardian, Food &Home Entertaining, Business Day and others. And look out for her cookbook: Curry – Stories & Recipes Across South Africa (2017), available at bookstores around South African and online at Exclusive Books and Loot.
