Sevtap trained in the kitchen with international cookbook and television personality Bill Granger at his iconic cafe 'bills' in Sydney, before moving to the northern New South Wales town of Yamba twenty years ago. Looking for a quieter life, Sevtap opened her own cafe, The Beechwood Cafe, which quickly became the must-visit venue for foodies. It maintains its strong following to this day.
