How to Cook Like.. Andy Oliver of Som Saa

This week, I meet with chef Andy Oliver at his Shoreditch restaurant Som Saa to see how he cooks a classic Thai recipe; green papaya salad. While Andy creates a delicious papaya salad, he gives advice on where to find the ingredients he uses in the recipe.

He tells me how he came to own a Thai restaurant including, right at the beginning, working with with Thai food hero David Thompson at his legendary – but sadly now closed – Thai restaurant Nahm.

Later on, Andy tells me what happened when he had to fire one of his chefs after a Twitter storm in 2018.
