Make the custard, pour over the chocolate and stir to mix.
Rub the butter into the sifted flour, sugar and almonds until crumb-like. Add the egg yolks and press in. Wrap the dough in kitchen film and leave to stand for at least one hour. Push through the rolling machine at setting no. 2 and cut into rectangles measuring 1 1/4" x 3 1/4". Bake at 375 degrees F for approximately four minutes until lightly browned. Store in an airtight tin with silica gel.
Lemon cookie spiral
Mix the marmalade with the flour and spread over a silpat. Bake at 300 degrees F for 7 minutes. While still hot, form into a cylinder shape. Store in an airtight tin with silica gel.
Mix the fondant and glucose and heat to 320 degrees F. Remove from the heat and add the cocoa paste. Spread onto a silpat while still hot. Place another silpat on top and roll over with a rolling-pin. Cut the paste into squares.
To make the flakes, take one of the squares and place it between two silpats. Heat in the oven for about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, heat another tray. Roll out the paste very finely with a rolling pin then remove the top silpat. Cool the paste on a marble surface. Lift off and place on the warm tray and gradually pull off in flakes.
Blanch the lemons in boiling water for 2 minutes. Squeeze out the juice. Set aside the juice and peel. Wrap the seeds in a small bundle. Remove any pith from the peel.
Place the bundle with the seeds in a pressure cooker with the cleaned peel and half the water. Cover and heat. When the valve begins to spin, cook slowly for 10 minutes. Take half the lemon peel and push through a fine strainer. Cut the other half into thin julienne strips.
Place the strained juice from the pressure cooker (together with any juice squeezed out from the bundle of seeds) in a pan with the remaining water and the sugar. Bring to the boil and add the puréed and sliced peel. Simmer over a medium flame for 20 minutes, removing any foam with a slotted spoon. Finally, check the density on a cold plate. Set aside.
Place a thin strip of cocoa powder to one side of the plate and a strip of lemon marmalade to the other. At the center, place a blob of chocolate cream as if it were glue and stick the sablé to it. Decorate to one side with six blobs of chocolate cream close to each other. Top with the lemon cookie and finally a quenelle of cocoa sorbet, one of chocolate sorbet and one of corn sorbet.
