(Make the recipe one day ahead)
Make a syrup with the water and sugar. Cook the fennel in the syrup with the whole chilli for 1½ hour on a low heat.
Lemon yellow mixture
Put the lemon juice, sugar and eggs on a low heat and whip the mixture like a sabayon: it has to triple in volume.
Off the heat, add the butter and the extract of fennel seeds and mix well. Refrigerate.
Cut the fennel into thin slices and set aside. Whip the cream and mix with the lemon mixture: 1 spoon of lemon mixture for 2 tablespoons of cream.
Put the cream on a plate and sprinkle with slices of fennel.
Just before serving, in front of your guests, spray one to two sprays of fennel seed extract on each plate.
