Share yours with us for a chance to win a press. The deadline for the competition, #howdoyoupressyours? is fast approaching. If there are there any more Precarious Pictures or Disastrous Tales of pressing tofu out there, please let us have them by the end of March. Or if you think you can’t beat or massively identify with what has already been submitted, vote for your favourite entry from these below.

    Disaster Stories

    “Frying pan and Nutribullet balancing on top, fell onto kitchen wall and broke a tile” Cathy White, Planet Veggie

    “When pressing using a frying pan and tins. The cat waltzed past and knocked the handle” Monsoon of Random

    “In between chopping boards but it always seems to break up” Jennifer Hale

    “Chop board, massive saucepan filled with tins, the water went all over the floor, didn’t notice and slipped over” Zoe

    “After failing to press tofu by placing heavy objects on it, I tried hanging it up in a muslin cheesecloth to drain. Only a few drops came out. My son had the bright idea of twisting the cheesecloth round and round to compress the tofu. As he did this small vermicelli-like “worms” of tofu extruded out of the holes in the cloth and went all over the place, while the tofu left in the cloth was now so thoroughly engrained that the two could not be separated. Tofu “worms” and tofu-impregnated cheesecloth all ended up in the bin.” Fiona Karbal
