The Beer and Food Companion is set to become a classic reference for anyone wishing to pair beer and food, to cook with beer or to discover the delights of both the traditional and modern art of the beer sommelier. Beer has been drunk with food for thousands of years yet only now is it being appreciated as the perfect companion to food. It is even better than wine for pairing with cheese, for example. Tracing the history of beer and food matching, this book educates your palate to recognise the characteristics of a flavoursome beer, with delicious recipes that allow you to cook, pair and appreciate your ale at a whole new level. Profiles of key chefs, restaurateurs, beer experts, beer sommeliers and cicerones from around the world zone in on the new and exciting world of beer and food matching, including London pub The Bull, Restobières in Brussels and Higgins Restaurant in Portland, Oregon. Charts for Beer & Food and Food & Beer pairing provide at-a-glance perfect matches for easy reference when you are sourcing beer. With expert knowledge on the art of marrying flavour and cooking with beer you will quickly come to recognise the rich and rewarding combination of porter and chocolate desserts, the delicate counterbalance of a wheat beer with seafood, or the pleasing combination of a hoppy pale ale with a mild curry.

Introduction to Probability with Texas Hold’em Examples illustrates both standard and advanced probability topics using the popular poker game of Texas Hold’em, rather than the typical balls in urns. The author uses students’ natural interest in poker to teach important concepts in probability. This classroom-tested book covers the main subjects of a standard undergraduate probability course, including basic probability rules, standard models for describing collections of data, and the laws of large numbers. It also discusses several more advanced topics, such as the ballot theorem, the arcsine law, and random walks, as well as some specialized poker issues, such as the quantification of luck and skill in Texas Hold’em. Homework problems are provided at the end of each chapter. The author includes examples of actual hands of Texas Hold’em from the World Series of Poker and other major tournaments and televised games. He also explains how to use R to simulate Texas Hold’em tournaments for student projects. R functions for running the tournaments are freely available from CRAN (in a package called holdem). See Professor Schoenberg discuss the book.
