A video posted on Friday on @ukinthailand, the Facebook page of the British Embassy in Bangkok, showed Johnson cooking Som Tam or green papaya salad, one of the most commonly available and popular dishes in Thailand. The dish traces its origins to the country’s Northeast.
Johnson met Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o- cha and Foreign Minister Don Pramudwinai last Monday to discuss UK-Thai relations.
After his return to UK, Johnson appeared to joke about sex tourism in Thailand during a major speech about Brexit in his home country but the British Embassy in Thailand insisted that he had made no mention of sex tourism.
According to the embassy, Johnson said: “… I have just discovered we have more than a million people who go to Thailand every year, where our superb consular services deal with some of the things that they get up to there.”
