Hmmmm… I’m not too sure… I feel just on first thoughts, like Sherlock might be something rich and dark and chocolatey, where as John would be more sharp, maybe a lemon cake, with syrup, but with cream to soften the bite….
Any thoughts, you connoisseurs?

I picture Sherlock as something smokey and crisp, like maybe lapsang souchong spice cookies.  

John, on the other hand, seems like something that’s familiar and plain at first glance but actually both comforting and unexpected, perhaps lemon-rosemary shortbread.

Ooh, to be honest, I just love collecting the bits and bobs of fandom fabulousness, I’ve never thought about a cohesive meal…. I guess it would be all very British(!) which I’m afraid is not something I can help you with…

(I confess I very insensitively thought of something with rabbit for a starter, but not only would I be very sorry to eat Bluebell, I’m not sure if it’s quite as readily available outside of Australia)

I do believe there are several (canon) Sherlock inspired cookbooks, or maybe some followers might have suggestions to offer?

So I created Sherlock Desserts.

  • Sherlock Holmes: Not expensive enough for the great taste it provides, covered in simple, white muffin paper, in your hands lies a very intense, dark-chocolate muffin, not really heavy, but almost overwhelming. Filled with fresh ginger cream, with a hint of lemon juice, contrasting and bracing. Topped with blackberry sauce, the non-sticky one, just a bit dissolved into the moist, rich dough, leaving you the aftertaste you can't forget. Oddly enough, every piece being almost bitter, together they are unique and memorable.
  • John Watson: If you have ever tasted a home-made pound cake, you will recognize this taste. Almost round, and only a bit bigger than your fist, the John-cake is strongly soaked with an English Breakfast type of tea, not too sweet, with a hint of rum. As you get to the center, you discover a heavy chocolate truffle, rich and sweet. Be careful, the delicate vanilla topping with hazelnuts can stick all over your face!
  • Jim Moriarty: Probably the most unique dessert you've ever encountered. Reminds you of a fine crème brûlée, and yes - the waiter caramelizes the surface of your dish, but it's not as smooth and sweet as the original. At the very bottom lies a plain ladyfinger biscuit, covered with quaint chocolate liquor, with a strong taste of coffee and mint. The very top is covered with brown, sweet caramel, but sprinkled with salt. You almost expect encountering some hot chili. This isn't something you can casually eat - such a feast demands celebration with every bite.
  • Mycroft Holmes: On an elegant plate lies a fine piece of cake. The soft biscuit dough is soaked with amaretto, and layered with liqueur cherries, contrasting finely with coconut cream. Crushed hazelnuts and almonds on top do not indicate the unexpected intensity of this dessert, yet you are positively pleased - it's indeed the finest kind of cake. Don't you dare to eat it in rush, or without companion of a splendid cup of tea.
  • Greg Lestrade: It's packed in a paper take-away bag, and the silent rumble of the crust brings a smile to your face. It's a yeast bun, filled with home-made berry marmalade, sweet enough for you to bee needing a drink afterwards, but not too overwhelming, not unpleasant. The crust is amazing, you wish you could eat it all day! The bun itself is pleasantly nourishing, and smells like cinnamon and home.
  • Irene Adler: A great, beautiful, pompous tiramisu presents itself proudly from the crystal cup it's located in. It's amazingly smooth, with the ladyfingers just enough crispy for the dessert not to be boring. The coffee is in fact a coffee liqueur, which in addition to the candied cherries on top is almost enough to make you drunk. You know you will be coming back for more, but one portion is enough to fill your taste buds for days.
  • Molly Hooper: A cookie like many of the others, yet absolutely unique. Home-made and dripping with love, soothing you in seconds. The chocolate chips are molten just a bit, enough to be even sweeter and a bit crunchy. Soft, buttery taste of the dough makes you think of milk, and the warmness of it makes your eyelid close. You can never get enough. Perfect for meetings with family.
  • Mrs Hudson: This cheesecake goes well with everything, especially anecdotes and happy stories. To support all that cheese cream custard and wild berries, the bottom is really thick. That doesn't worry you at all - the butter cake is simply amazing, as well as the crust. Warm and welcoming, sweet and soft, perfect for summer, this cake makes you happier as soon as you take just one bite. There is a lot of it, so don't worry and get as much second-serves as you like!
