This cookbook is dedicated to the fans of Joss Whedon's "Firefly" television show and the movie "Serenity." Some of the recipes in here are included in the "Big Damn Chefs: The International Browncoat Charity Cookbook" (are most likely my own recipes). Other recipes are ones that would easily fit within the Firefly Universe, or fit the general theme from in-jokes having to do with episode. "Big Damn Chefs" is available at BigDamnChefs.com and is a collaborative charity project. It is collection of recipes submitted by fans (also known as Browncoats) of Joss Whedon.

The best Tofu dish ever -- eat it by itself or combine with rice or sesame noodles and cashews for a meal. I have also tried using the sauce as a marinade & baking and for a nice change make like regular and add 2 tablespoons of your choice of nutbutters to the miso soup (I avoid peanuts due to allergies) bit it works great with cashew butter, almond butter, macademia butter & sessame butter. Great also with toasted nuts sprinkled on top.
When you're not in port, or out of credits, and you've got a hankering to add The Heat and flavor to whatever is on the galley table, this basic paste is a good option for you. Because after all, dried chiles take up hardly any room or weight and you can always keep 'em around and make your own paste according to how gorram hot *you* like it, dong ma? (Recipe inspired by Joss Whedon's television show "Firefly" and movie "Serenity." Description is in character...) :)
There are many different variations of this salad out there, of course. My version differs in that the dressing is creamy, and not sweet. The recipe makes 4 main-dish portions, or 8-10 side dish portions. It's great as a dinner entrée, and fast and easy to make! Very popular as a take-along potluck or picnic item, too.
Jayne likes his noodles easy and fast. This is about as fancy as he gets when making them. Just a bit sweet and spicy… if he’s being uncharacteristically generous and sharing them with someone else, he might leave out the cayenne. (Inspired by Joss Whedon’s television show “Firefly” and movie “Serenity.”)
Mal’s old friend postman Ammon Duul once told him about this recipe and gave him a copy. Easy to cook aboard ship, easy to store, with the noodles, oil, sugar, and water all readily available. Ammon said that on Earth that it was called Kugel Yerushalmi. Sweet, peppery, delicious! (Inspired by Joss Whedon’s television show “Firefly” and movie “Serenity.”)
We don't have lamb for dinner very often - usually when we do, it's a traditional leg of lamb when my mother is visiting. This, however, is a nice, simple, and easily-made variation for when you find less expensive cuts of lamb.
