"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

5 ounces semisweet chocolate
3 ounces unsweetened chocolate
6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs, at room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 tablespoon instant espresso powder
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup chopped walnuts

1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line several cookie sheets with parchment paper or grease them lightly with butter.

2. Melt the 8 ounces semisweet and unsweetened chocolate and the butter in the top of a double boiler placed over simmering water. Allow it to cool slightly.

3. Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt together into a small bowl and set aside.

4. Using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the eggs, vanilla, and espresso powder in a medium-size mixing bowl until they are mixed together, about 10 seconds.

5. Add the sugar to the egg mixture and blend it all until thick, about 1 minute. Scrape the bowl.

6. Add the melted chocolate and blend 1 minute more. Scrape the bowl.

7. Add the flour mixture on low speed and mix until blended, 10 seconds. Fold in the chocolate chips and nuts by hand or with the mixer on low speed.

8. Drop the dough by generously rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.

9. Bake the cookies until they rise slightly and form a thin crust, about 13 minutes. Immediately remove the cookies from the cookie sheets and place them on a rack to cool,
