Who’s this Marge?

Our Marge comes from a long line of cooks and B. Essers.

Her parents, aunts, and uncles owned diners and cafes in the village of Telkwa in Canada’s Pacific Northwest during the 1940s and 1950s.

Marge began helping her Mom in the kitchen at age three and was cooking many family meals by the time she was 11-years-old.

At age 15, she got rave reviews for her tasty Sunday night dinner of baked sausages with mushroom and onion gravy, a side of garlic mashed potatoes and fresh peas. She got a crash course in compliments, customer satisfaction, and complaints later that week when she served the dish for the fourth consecutive day.

Things have changed, thankfully. Marge’s cooking skills are darn good, and she’s able to take the heat in the kitchen. She doesn’t mind giving it, either.  

If you’re at the Diner early in the morning, beware, as Marge is likely to talk about what she’s serving for dinner even before she’s had a sip of her first coffee. That’s dedication! 

Make sure you sit close to the counter as the regulars like to park themselves there. Chatter is free with your meal.
