Instructions
Prepare the Consumme
  1. In tall narrow pot, gently heat stock to reach body temperature. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, stir together vegetables, parsley, and meat until well combined; add salt and pepper; fold in egg whites.
  2. Whisk heated stock into egg mixture; return to pot and, whisking, bring slowly to boil. When mixture begins to look frothy, stop stirring to allow egg mixture to rise and solidify into a raft. Lower heat to medium-low. Carefully make a vent hole in raft with spoon handle. Simmer consommé gently for 30 minutes.
  3. Leaving pot on heat, carefully push raft down with back of ladle; ladle the clarified consommé through cheesecloth-lined sieve into clean pot. Heat until very hot. Stir in Port.
Garnish and serve
  1. Slice scallops crosswise into 3 pieces, place 3 discs into bottom of each of 6 warmed bowls. Pour hot consommé over scallops; arrange celeriac (or celery), carrot, and cucumber decoratively in each bowl. Serve immediately.
