Cooking Up Some Magic with @eudiiih

For more food inspiration from Diego, follow @eudiiih on Instagram.

“There is a certain magic about cooking. It’s like creating a potion,” says Diego Oliveira (@eudiiih), an aspiring photographer from São Paulo with a passion for cooking. Diego learned at a young age that there is also magic in taking pictures. As a child, his uncle told him that photography was like “looking at the world through a little magic rectangle.” This phrase sparked dreams of becoming a paparazzi photographer. “I was fascinated by their gigantic cameras,” Diego laughs. While the paparazzi dream was eventually outgrown, Diego’s love for photography was just beginning. “I got into the habit of photographing with my eyes, admiring life, noticing the light of day, the reflections in water or a beautiful plate of food,” he says.

Growing up, Diego learned to love cooking from his aunt. “I would spend most weekends with my aunt, who was a cook, and she would give me small tasks in the kitchen to keep me busy. On weekends, my family would also get together to share food, so cooking reminds me of family and fun.”

Today, Diego blends his passions for photography and cuisine by capturing his culinary creations on camera. He hopes that through his photos his audience can get a taste for his cooking, which is heavily influenced by northeastern Brazil’s strong flavors, as well as food from North America. In order to get his creative juices flowing, Diego’s soundtrack must be just right. “My taste is eclectic. Everything from Madonna to Maria Bethânia,” he says. “Music helps me prepare food and inspires me to photograph the table. Music is fuel.”

Pizza Waffles

Ingredients

  • 1 can accidentally vegan refrigerated biscuits (the ones that POP!)
  • 2 cups dairy-free cheese, like Daiya
  • 1 package vegan pepperoni (try Tofurky pepperoni slices)
  • Non-stick spray
  • 1 cup your favorite marinara sauce (for dipping!)

Instructions

1. Preheat the waffle maker.
2. Spray with non-stick spray so the biscuits don’t stick.
3. Flatten a section of the biscuit dough into a patty and slice in half crosswise (like you would a hamburger bun). If the dough rounds are too small (or you want more waffle with your pizza), use two biscuits to form each patty instead.
4. Lovingly place your fillings between the two dough slices, seal that bish like it’s pie, and waffle press that sh*t until golden brown (about 2 to 3 minutes.)
5. Aaand repeat.
