Tall Order Culinary believes that nothing bonds a corporate team than a shared success cooking in the kitchen together. As Canada’s leading culinary team building company, we offer our team building and cooking services to any number of participants large or small.

We opened for business in 2002 facilitating corporate cooking team building in Vancouver. BC. Our first cooking program was in France! Our unique culinary programs and icebreakers were designed to facilitate cooking programs to be ‘mobile’, ‘live’ and now ‘virtual’.

Our target market is primarily focused on corporate, non-profit and conference clients. We promote the balance of life and work starts with the engagement and the power of ‘self’ and ‘team’. To this our goal is to deliver to our clients a valued experience beyond expectations.

In 2002, Julie Burke founded Tall Order, a five-star culinary team building business. She has designed the foundation in which corporate teams cook together. Julie takes risks on a bet to herself that her vision has the potential to harness her creativity and build a successful business. Under Julie’s leadership, the valued roles of her skilled team lay the foundation for adapting to her client’s corporate culture. This in turn with the intention to deliver a fun and engaging experience.

Julie is a BCIT graduate and has been an active player in the hospitality industry since she was twenty-two. In 1981, Julie founded Everything Done Right Catering, a high-end catering business. During that time, Julie developed a line of dressings and sauces sold to large retail store chains in Canada and Mexico.

In 1989, Julie was a recipient of the 40 Under 40 award. In 2006, Julie was inducted into the BC Chapter of Les Dames d’Escoffier. An invitational organization of women leaders in food and beverage whose mission is further education, scholarship, and philanthropy.
