Chef Steve

Chef Steve Kershner’s enthusiasm for cooking began as a child, where he enjoyed time in the kitchen with his father who was also a chef. Taking his natural talents into the workforce, he developed his unique cuisine through positions at the Hotel Bethlehem, Cascade Lodge, Spring Valley Inn, Belmont Inn, and the Apollo Grill. Chef Steve had the honor of participating in a class at La Varenne at the Green Briar Hotel with Anne Willan and Julia Child where he was able to further develop his skills.

Over the years, Chef Steve has been privileged to have the opportunity to prepare meals for Lech Walesa, Diana Krall, Henny Youngman, Eartha Kitt, Emeril Lagasse, and Gene Kranz (NASA Flight Director for over sixty space missions including Apollo 11 and 13).

In recognition of his friendly demeanor and enticing meals, Chef Steve was voted "Lehigh Valley’s Favorite Chef" by readers of the Lehigh Valley Style magazine in 2009, 2011 & 2014.

The inspiration for his unique dishes comes from many sources, including his travels throughout Europe. He insists on a blend of fresh ingredients, creativity, attention to detail and the utmost quality in every meal he serves. Chef Steve devotes time to create a unique dining experience for his guests at the Twisted Olive.


Since the beginning we always envisioned bringing the freshest most local ingredients into the kitchen here at Twisted Olive. Our organic GMO-free garden is a labor of love that enriches our menu, our cocktails, and our lives. From the plotting and planning or early February to the end of harvest season in late October, we are continuously looking for ways to allow our customers to experience the freshest ingredients. From our handcrafted cocktails to our bountiful menu, the garden works its way into our daily activities. This allows us to pass on the fruits of our labor to you, the customer. So please sit back and enjoy your time here, it is our pleasure to have you dining with us.
