Memoirs From Mrs. Hudson’s Kitchen

Mrs. Hudson is possibly the most famous landlady in literature.  Presiding over the comings and goings at 221B Baker Street, she saw many clients, villains and Baker Street irregulars during the tenancy of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. This series of columns, thoughts, recipes and memoirs are from a long-running column in the Sherlockian journal, Canadian Holmes. In it the author, Wendy Heyman-Marsaw, puts herself in Mrs. Hudson’s shoes, up and down the 17 steps and recounts not only the time and era but the food, dining and eating habits of Victorian England. This book explores the meals Mrs. Hudson would have prepared and served her two famous lodgers, what food they would have had while on rail journeys or eating at hotels around London or inns around England.  You will also learn about Mrs. Hudson herself, her husband and even her views towards women’s roles and rights in Victorian times. With many illustrations from the Strand Magazine, readers will get a rare peek inside Victorian life.

“Ms. Heyman-Marsaw has done an incredible job of gathering Mrs. Hudson’s comments and recipes, and editors JoAnn and Mark Alberstat have assembled the pieces into a very pleasing whole. I’m very glad to have this volume in my collection, both for Mrs. Hudson’s own thoughts, and also for the chance to try some of the recipes.” – David Marcum

Review published in the winter edition of the Canadian Holmes of the East Wind Coming – A Sherlockian Study Book

“This book looks at a wide range of Sherlockian topics from dentistry (Hirayama is a dentist in Tokyo) to the tracking of Heidegger’s bicycle. Hirayama is best known as the driving force behind The Shoso-in Bulletin, an international Sherlockian journal published from 1991 to 2004. This work consists of 28 articles/essays written by Hirayama for his publication and also others. Four of the articles are coauthored with John Hall, a English Holmesian. For the Sherlockian purist, the articles on the first nine cases in The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes may be the strongest in the book. But all are interesting, and this book will find an audience in a wide swath of the Sherlockian world.”
