For the Lemon Cremeux (to make when the compote has hardened):

1. Hydrate the gelatin.

2. Melt the butter.

3. Add the sugar, the lemon juice, the zests and the eggs.

4. Bring to boil, while whisking constantly. Once it has boiled, keep cooking ~1min.

For the Streusel:

1. Preheat the oven to 170°C.

It’s time to assemble!

1. Heat the glaze in a water bath or in the microwave. Don’t exceed 40°C. To do so, you can partially melt the glaze and then mix with a hand blender.

2. Unmold the entremets and place them on a tray.

3. Once the glaze is between 18-22°C you can glaze.

4. Let the excess fall down and then place each entremet over a streusel disk.

5. Whip the blueberry Ganache until it forms firm peaks. Place in a pastry bag fitted with a 1,5cm plain tip.

6. Whip the lemon cremeux for a few seconds. Place in a pastry bag fitted with a 1cm plain tip.

7. Pipe dots of whipped ganache and dots of cremeux over the entremet.
