The English Governess at the Siamese Court

The English Governess at the Siamese Court by Anna Harriette Leonowens

The English Governess at the Siamese Court by Anna Harriette Leonowens

1862 Anna Leonowens accepted an offer made by the Siamese consul in Singapore, Tan Kim Ching, to teach the wives and children of Mongkut, king of Siam. The king wished to give his 39 wives and concubines and 82 children a modern Western education on scientific secular lines, which earlier missionaries’ wives had not provided. Leonowens sent her daughter Avis to school in England, and took her son Louis with her to Bangkok. She succeeded Dan Beach Bradley, an American missionary, as teacher to the Siamese court.

Leonowens served at court until 1867, a period of nearly six years, first as a teacher and later as language secretary for the king. Although her position carried great respect and even a degree of political influence, she did not find the terms and conditions of her employment to her satisfaction, and came to be regarded by the king himself as a rather difficult woman.

In 1868 Leonowens was on leave for her health in England and had been negotiating a return to the court on better terms when Mongkut fell ill and died. The king mentioned Leonowens and her son in his will, though they did not receive the legacy. The new monarch, fifteen-year-old Chulalongkorn, who succeeded his father, wrote Leonowens a warm letter of thanks for her services.

By 1869 Leonowens was in New York, and began contributing travel articles to a Boston journal, Atlantic Monthly, including ‘The Favorite of the Harem’, reviewed by the New York Times as ‘an Eastern love story, having apparently a strong basis of truth’.She expanded her articles into two volumes of memoirs, beginning with The English Governess at the Siamese Court (1870), which earned her immediate fame but also brought charges of sensationalism. In her writing she casts a critical eye over court life; the account is not always a flattering one, and has become the subject of controversy in Thailand; she has also been accused of exaggerating her influence with the king.”

Five Cookbooks every cook should own!

All You Can Books, top picks for cooking books

Cooking is a science as much as it is an art. But more than that, cooking is fun, and it’s accessible to all, whether you’re a Michelin-star chef or a disaster-prone mess in the kitchen.

That’s why there are quite a few beloved personalities who have put the joy of cooking into words. No, we’re not talking about cookbooks, but rather books about cooking—books that describe the freedom, philosophy, and art of putting together something tasty.

Let us look at the top picks by All You Can Books:

The Khaki Kook Book | Mary Kennedy Core

We cannot ignore the fact that we must eat, and that much as we dislike to acknowledge it, we are compelled to think a great deal about filling our stomachs. This is especially true these days, when prices have soared and soared and taken along with them, far out of the reach of many of us, certain articles of food which we heretofore have always felt were quite necessary to us.

About ten years ago the idea of writing a little cookbook had its birth. The author was in Almora that summer. Almora is a station far up in the Himalayas, a clean little bazaar nestles at the foot of enclosing mountains. Dotting the deodar-covered slopes of these mountains are the picturesque bungalows of the European residents while towering above and over all are the glistening peaks of the eternal snows.

The people of India since Vedic times have eaten curry and always will.

365 Foreign Dishes |

Starters, main courses and desserts from around the world, one dish for every day of the year. From Turkey to China, from India to England, from Austria to Egypt, a wide variety of mouth-watering cuisines are represented.

Each recipe is described in one short paragraph, making this book perfect for dipping into when you’re seeking inspiration on what to cook.

Cassell's Vegetarian Cookery | A. G. Payne

This is a little cookbook of vegetarian recipes, which was gaining popularity in England at the time of its publication.

The recipes are all very clearly described, and any modern listener should be able to try them out if any of them strike their fancy.

A Poetical Cook-Book | Maria J. Moss

This is an interesting mix of recipes and poetry about cookery and food. The author has written this book during and in the aftermath of the civil war in the United States. The recipes are sound and can be used still today, and the poetry is an interesting collection of short excerpts and poems by all famous poets.

Seventy-Five Receipts for Pastry, Cakes and Sweetm | Eliza Leslie

If you are a sweet tooth, and love baking, this is the book for you. Or if you are aspiring baker, you will find your love for baking right here in this book.
