"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Ingredients:  
10 oz. bittersweet Ghirardelli chocolate
1 c. sugar
1 1/4 sticks unsalted butter
4 large eggs
4 large egg yolks
Large pinch of salt
1/2 c. flour

Directions:
Butter and flour ramekins. Melt chocolate and butter in a medium bowl set over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally. Remove bowl from over the water and cool chocolate mixture to lukewarm.

Using an electric mixer at a high speed, beat sugar, eggs, yolks, and salt in large bowl until batter falls in heavy ribbon when beaters are lifted, about 6 minutes. Sift flour over mixture and fold in. Gradually fold in lukewarm chocolate mixture. Divide mixture among prepared ramekins. Souffles can be prepared a day ahead, covered with plastic wrap and refrigerated.

Preheat over to 400. Place ramekins on a baking sheet; bake souffles until puffed and just beginning to crack, anywhere from 15-19 minutes. The centers should be soft/molten. Serve immediately.

Personal Notes:
I have large 4 1/4 inch diameter ramekins, and make 8 servings with the recipe. They are generous portions, and best to serve after a meal that is not too heavy! If your ramekins are smaller, you will get 10 servings. If made ahead and refrigerated, remove from the refrigerator several hours before baking, as they will bake more evenly when brought to room temperature first. Watch closely, they should not be too 'cake like' in texture!
