Marie Claire Event

Since the start of the pandemic, Marie Claire were pioneers in the field of hosting Live Beauty Shoots, which they used to replace the traditional fashion & beauty shoots commissioned to create beautiful content for their print and online publications. This month, L'OCCITANE UK & IRE collaborated with Marie Claire on a Live Beauty Shoot, hosted on YouTube, to publicise four of L'OCCITANE's best-selling skincare collections and to ultimately generate skincare assets to be used across social, web, email and retail marketing during the skincare campaign later this year. The shoots were presented by Skin and Makeup Expert, Adeola Gboyega, and Marie Claire’s very own Beauty and Style Director, Lisa Oxenham.

The four skin collections that featured in the shoot were: Skincare Masterclass for Dry Skin, featuring our Shea Butter Collection, Skincare Masterclass for Dehydrated Skin, featuring our Aqua Reotier Collection, Skincare Masterclass for First Signs of Ageing, featuring our Immortelle Precious Collection and finally the Skincare Masterclass for Intelligent Ageing, featuring our Immortelle Divine Collection. Ofcourse, L'OCCITANE's iconic Overnight Reset Serum featured in all four skincare collections.

Hazelnut Crusted Butternut Squash Star

INGREDIENTS

You will need:
500g block shortcrust pastry, 1 large butternut squash, 1tbsp olive oil, 1 tbsp chopped sage, 100g ricotta, 50g hazelnuts, lightly toasted, 1 egg whisked, Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper & 1 tbsp pomegranate seeds.
METHOD
1. Preheat the oven to 180oC.

2. Peel the butternut squash and remove the seeds. Cut the flesh into 2cm chunks. Place in a roasting tin, drizzle a tablespoon of olive oil, season and roast in the oven for 20-25 minutes until just cooked. Leave to cool.

3. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface to 4-5mm thick. Cut out the shape of a 5 point star and place on a lined baking sheet. Prick the star all over using a fork.

4. Using the excess pastry left after cutting out the star, cut out shapes using a 2cm fluted cutter. Brush the edge of the star with a little water and arrange the pastry shapes in overlapping lines around the edge of the star to form a border. Chill for 30 minutes.

5. Meanwhile, place half of the roasted butternut squash in a mixing bowl and mash with a fork. Add the chopped sage and ricotta and gently mix. Season to taste.

6. Spread the butternut squash and ricotta mix over the star, keeping it inside the border. Dot the remaining pieces of butternut squash all over the mix.

7. Using a pastry brush, brush the pastry border with the beaten egg and sprinkle the toasted hazelnuts over the pastry.

8. Place a baking sheet in the oven to heat up. Slide the star and baking paper onto the hot baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes until the pastry is golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

9. Garnish with pomegranate seeds.

Yule Log

INGREDIENTS
For the chocolate sponge: 4 eggs, 100g caster sugar, 80g self-raising flour & 50g cocoa powder.

For the chocolate ganache topping: 400ml double cream & 350g dark chocolate.

For the cream filling: 400ml double cream. 

To decorate: icing sugar. 
METHOD
1. Preheat the oven to 200C/Gas 6. Lightly grease a 33x23cm/13x9in swiss roll tin, and line with baking parchment paper, pushing it into the corners.

2. To make the sponge. Whisk the eggs and sugar in a large bowl using an electric hand whisk until the mixture is pale and light in colour. Next sift in the flour and cocoa powder into the bowl and carefully fold together, using a spatula, until all the cocoa and flour are incorporated into the egg mixture.

3. Pour the mixture into the lined tin and spread evenly out into the corners. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, or until well risen and firm to the touch.

4. Place a piece of baking parchment bigger than the Swiss roll tin on the work surface. Dust with icing sugar generously. Carefully invert the cake onto the paper and remove the bottom lining piece of paper.

5. Cut a score mark 2.5cm/1in in along one of the longer edges. Starting with this edge, begin to tightly roll up the sponge using the paper. Roll with the paper inside and sit the roll on top of its outside edge to cool completely.

6. Next make the ganache topping. Warm the cream in a pan, then remove from the heat and add the chocolate, stirring until it is melted. Cool to room temperature, then put into the fridge to firm up.

7. Uncurl the cooled swiss roll and remove the paper. Spread the whipped cream on top, and re-roll tightly. Cut a quarter of the cake off from the end on the diagonal. Transfer the large piece of cake to a serving plate and angle the cut end in to the middle of the large cake to make a branch.

8. Use a palette knife to spread on the chocolate ganache icing and create rough bark texture with a fork. Finish with a dusting of icing sugar.
