Shaily Lipa was born in Tel Aviv and raised there and in Ra'anana, the daughter of Tel Aviv natives whose origins are in Greece and Turkey. Her Greek grandparent is a Holocaust survivor who survived Auschwitz. She was raised in a family that dines well, entertains and talks about food. [2]

She never studied formally in any cookery school, but she attended several cooking courses. Her academic studies include a bachelor's degree in biology from the agriculture faculty of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.


At the time her son Itamar was born, Lipa sought a career change compatible with raising him. She won first place in a recipe contest held by the "Gourmet" supplement of the Israeli women's magazine At (Hebrew: "you" [f.]). Her prizes were a trip to Paris and her own food column.

In the years 2009 – 2011 she authored a food column in the Israeli mainstream daily Maariv. Since November 2011 she has hosted, along with other chefs, a food section on the lifestyle television show hosted by Odetta Schwartz. [3] She participated in the third season of the Matkon Batuach (Hebrew: Safe Recipe) show on Israel TV's Channel 2, together with other prominent Israeli chefs.

In May 2012 she started hosting her own TV cookery show, Habait shel Shaily (Hebrew: Shaily's Home) on TV Channel 2's Reshet division. In each installment she prepares five easy-to-make dishes. [4]

In September 2015 she started hosting her TV cookery show "Super Shaily" on TV channel 10. In each installment she cooks 4–5 courses meal and hosts a DIY (Do It Yourself) expert. [5]

Lipa has developed recipes for food industry companies including Tnuva, Shimrit, Sunfrost, Maadanot, Hardoof, Gad Milk, and Quaker Oats.

In May 2017 she started hosting her new TV cookery show, Matkon le-Chisachon (Hebrew: Recipe for saving) on TV Channel 2's Keshet division. In each installment she prepares five easy and minimalistic dishes. [6]
