COOK’S CORNER Hello again – can it be that since our last chat, summer has come and gone and we sit on the cusp of yet another Chicago winter? How delightful. And if you’re really not a “winter person” perhaps some of our goings-on will make you a convert. I hope by now you have had the chance to check out Cathedral Hall and Mark Baker in the “new” Cathedral Hall. the new initiatives we implemented in October. We had a tremendous “restaurant week” and averaged over 120 diners each night – it was great; the joint was rockin’, and it allowed us to show everyone what we’ve been up to. If you didn’t make it, look for another chance in early 2012. In the meantime stop in for a cocktail with a view, or perhaps a bite from our November menu featuring my seasonally inspired cuisine. This month I see porcini, pheasant, pumpkin - all foods starting with the letter “p”…just kidding. You can check out the menu anytime on the website. I hope you take special note of our new format and pricing which allows you to determine not only how much you eat but also spend. Also food related, renowned author Patricia Wells returns to the Club on November 22 to discuss her new book Simply Truffles, the black and white kind, not the chocolate. So if you’re a foodie, you don’t want to miss her. P.S. PRI76ME Night still rules Thursdays. With November we kick off the start of our holiday season and much will vie for your attention, from the Champagne Tasting to Thanksgiving Day in Cathedral Hall. It all eventually leads up to the grandest party of all, New Year’s Day. So in this social whirlwind time of a year, a few things to remember: • Always make reservations early…the Club events are extremely popular, a tradition for many, and we want you to get the day and time you prefer. I know some think we can always squeeze just one more in, but we don’t hold special tables or have one in the pocket like some places, and our team works really hard to accommodate all requests. • Think about our Pastry Shop To Go program; perfect for Thanksgiving, let us provide the cranberry bread, pumpkin pie or harvest rolls to round out your feast; we thought about “turkeys to go” but that didn’t fly…actually more to do with available oven space. Pastry Chef Jimmy MacMillan not only crafts his tempting delights but also ensures beautiful packaging so any item is suitable for gift giving as well. • The holiday buffets are quite simply like nothing else. No grander space exists in Chicago than Cathedral Hall, especially during the holidays. So for family, friends or relatives home for the holidays, a special thank you for colleagues or clients, or just fellow members enjoying the camaraderie of the Club, there is simply nothing like it. So there you have it, a short lexicon of the next two months. And while this article seems to run on forever, there is much more happening this festive season, so check out our new website, look for our weekly Club eblast (and sign up for them if you haven’t; they contain what’s current and cool and often preview special offers or promotions not in the monthly newsletter). Why not go green all the way and opt to receive your 76 newsletter electronically? Let’s all help out the Post Office and our trees. That’s it for now, I do look forward to seeing you around the Club and I hope you and your families have the very best of holiday seasons. Now it’s time to go chop down my Christmas tree! So much for going green…
Mark Baker, Executive Chef

The Club is planning to host an event where children of members can meet and learn from a variety of members who have extensive and diverse industry experience. Reasons: The University Club believes in the importance of higher education. Our members are successful and accomplished individuals who understand intuitively the importance of social network. As we meet each other, socialize, and form friendship, why not extend the power of our collective knowledge base to the next generation? Our young adult children make the majority of their educational and career decisions between the age of 16 and 25. The more diverse experience and perspectives they have access to, the more well-informed decisions they are able to make. Action: If you are interested in serving as a Career Learning Facilitator, please contact member Esther Choy for further information. [email protected]
