I’m excited to present Chow Scout, a compilation of some of my favorite amazon food finds. When I haven’t found Colombian food or ingredients in town amazon has come through for me, and led me down some weird search rabbit holes, so I figured it’s time to share some of these goodies.
Looking forward to filling it with deliciousness, and getting picks and lists from some fellow food nerds, stay tuned for some fun stuff!

Pysanka: Next level egg decoration
Found this lovely booklet last night and discovered the beautiful art of Pysanka, the Ukrainian tradition of easter egg decoration. They have a huge cultural significance and the process of making them is intricate and fascinating, involving a special process of applying wax and multiple levels of dyes.
These designs and many more available here found via the wonderful Present & Correct blog.

Fried egg: the zine
Thanks to the guidance of the lovely Grace Danico’s Skillshare class, I’ve finished my first zine!
Not surprisingly it’s about my favorite food of all time, fried eggs:
Fried Egg: An illustrated journey
11x17 folded zine
Edition of 10 on eggshell, photocopy + watercolor.
Edition of 15 on yolk, photocopied.
These were super fun to make, glad I broke the ice by taking the class and going for it. If anyone is interested in getting a copy, email me at hello(at)hielsa(dot)com and i’ll send one along!

First set of clay pots are done! It was a challenge working with clay and glaze in that they are so fluid and imperfect- but once I let go I had a lot of fun with it.
