    Mille®'s Note:

    Next to the Albert Bridge on the banks of the River Thames in London, lock gates open into Ransome's Dock, and four hundred yards south in a converted ice factory at the water's end, is Ransome's Dock Restaurant and Bar. This elegant recipe from Ransome's combines roast beets, cooked in a way that intensifies their flavour, dressed with walnut oil and nutty, aged sherry vinegar, and the caramel sweetness of sauteed scallops. If possible, use live scallops in the shell - their flavour and texture fully justify the higher price ticket.
