"The Sweet Tooth Tour has done the impossible: it’s satiated my sweet tooth."
- The Guardian
Sweet Tooth Tours was founded in 2017 by Lynne Staartjes while she was studying pâtisserie at Le Cordon Bleu.
Lynne grew up between the US and the UK and started her pastry career at age 18 in the kitchen of one of Paris’ grand palace hotels. She then completed her degree in hospitality at the Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne in Switzerland before returning to London. Lynne worked in the office at Peggy Porschen Cakes and Pierre Herme Paris before returning to the kitchen for her diplôme de pâtisserie at Le Cordon Bleu.
Lynne wanted to combine her passions for desserts, London, travel and meeting new people and Sweet Tooth Tours was born. She is a wealth of information on the latest foodie and hospitality news. Her friends consider her a concierge of sorts. She has travelled extensively throughout all seven continents and is always on the lookout for pastry trends and new flavours.
Sugar needs to be enjoyed in moderation and Lynne believes in indulging in what's really worth it. What you enjoy on the tour you won’t be able to find at a supermarket or department store. Lynne works closely with the independent shops and small businesses visited on the tour to ensure you will have a unique experience at a high standard and a fun day out. You’ll not only learn about the food but also the area and stories behind the stores and their founders. Lynne leads all of the tours herself to ensure a personalised and passionate experience.
