Rare are the ones who manage to combine the beautiful with the macabre. Laura Makabresku sure knows how to create the full illusion. In an atmosphere of fairy tales, her photographs are overflown with mystic symbols dealing with eroticism and death. Laura seems to exist in the same ambiguous universe as artists like Timber Timbre, William Faulkner and Edgar Allan Poe. A dreamlike dark forested realm where the morbid meets the fantastic, the evil – the innocent and reality – the dream.
Looking for an easy to make-last minute hostess gift? Here’s an idea: marzipan stuffed dates. They are delicious, 100% natural and require two ingredients only. All you need to do is remove the pits from the Medjool dates (make a lateral cut) and then replace them by marzipan. As simple as that. And if you’re looking for something a little less sweet, you can always replace the marzipan by Mascarpone cheese. Et voilà! Sometimes less is more so don’t over think on what hostess gifts to give and keep it simple!
