About Your Chef- Kevin Moriarty
Hello, my name is Kevin Moriarty, Owner of Top Water Trips & Top Water Cooking. I grew up on the edge of the Oley Valley fishing with my dad and cooking with my mother. Cooking was introduced to me by my mother, just as her mother introduced it to her. I believe cooking and time in the kitchen can bring people together. My mother laid the groundwork for the knowledge and experience I have today. As time has passed my interest and passion for cooking has grown.
I am a certified Wilderness First Responder and am trained and certified to guide overnight, daily and weekend trips. I have training in River Entomology, Knot Tying, Drift Boating, Jet Boating, Wilderness Medicine, Fly Casting, Kayaking, Cooking, ServSafe Food Handling and Food Safety Management. I also received my Associates in Business, Cum Laude, from Reading Area Community College. Brian F, an award-winning and restaurant owner, and Jane, an accomplished Vegetarian Chef in Berks County, have taught me many things about food and the kitchen. Without them, I wouldn’t be where I am today with Top Water Trips & Top Water Cooking.
All of my training, education, and experience have been geared to owning and operating a guide and personal chef service, adopting meaningful responsibilities, sharing knowledge, and providing a service unparalleled in Pennsylvania. I have a ton of fun on the water and in the kitchen and its where I find myself at home,
