Sweet Tooth Tours - Food Tours of London and Paris
Sweet Tooth Tours got started back in 2017 and has swiftly become a premium provider of sweet treat food tours in both London and Paris. The company was founded by Lynne Staartjes. Lynne was studying patisserie at Le Cordon Bleu when she came upon the idea of Sweet Tooth Tours. She'd spent a lot of her life divided between the US and the United Kingdom, enjoying the unique culinary experiences offered by both nations.
At the age of 18, she started working at leading Parisian hotel, training to become a pastry chef and finishing her degree in hospitality at the Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne in Switzerland before heading over to London, working at such prestigious establishments at Peggy Porschen Cakes and Pierre Hermé Paris before going back into education with Le Cordon Bleu.
A lover of sweet things, travel, and sharing experiences with others, Lynne knew that her calling lay outside the kitchen, but wanted to work with food in some way. She decided to create Sweet Tooth Tours, food tours specializing in sweet treats like cupcakes and macaroons.
Lynne developed a network of contacts with some of the best sweet treat establishments around London and Paris, and she actually runs all of the tours herself, offering her own experience, expertise, and friendly demeanor to make each tour totally special for every guest while splitting her time between the capitals of both Britain and France. If you're looking for the best food tour experiences in London or Paris, Sweet Tooth Tours is the name to know.
The Sweet Tooth Tours Difference

They're fully exclusive and totally unique, and you'll learn all about the areas you're visiting along the way and meet many food professionals too.
