Love chef Johns videos. This didn't work out for me. Nice crust on top and the rest was totally liquid. Couldn't put it back in the oven after 15 minutes standing.

Wow turned out as expected. followed the directions to a t... and my family was impressed. so was I lol. wouldn't change a thing. The timing when you let them cool is the key, baked for 16 minutes, cool 15 min, exactly, any more rest and the lava will not flow like it should. Thank you chef John ...another great recipe

Chef John - I just want to say you are my favorite! I watch a lot of cooking shows and no one makes me laugh out loud (which can be embarrassing if you're by yourself in another room on the computer), or makes preparing a dish look like so much fun. I've watched all your videos at least once so I guess I'm a big fan. Thank you for all the delicious recipes and for such a great on screen personality. You should have your own show on the cooking channel. P.S. do you have a cookbook written?
