  • Dry-aged beef, lively atmosphere impress at Grillhouse by David Burke Dec 10, 2014 9:38 AM
    Grillhouse by David Burke in Schaumburg hasn't been open long, but it's on track to become a local favorite. The restaurant, which opened in late October by New York-based celebrity chef David Burke, offers a wider range of menu items than a traditional steakhouse, and puts a different spin on some of the dishes he offers at David Burke Primehouse in Chicago's James Hotel. But the beef, its preparation, quality and Burke's patented drying method remain unaltered.

  • Wines to Help Make The Season Bright Dec 8, 2014 4:51 PM
    For the past 35 years Lynfred Winery in Roselle has been warming up the holiday season with its spiced Christmas wines. The tradition was started by Lynfred founder Fred Koehler. Koehler’s family came to the Chicago area from Germany around the turn of the 19th century. In their homeland of Germany his winemaking family used to make warmed, spiced wines in the winter months to keep warm on frosty evenings. When he decided to open his winery in Roselle in 1979 he knew he wanted to carry on the family tradition with his own versions of mulled wines. 35 years later, Lynfred Winery’s Chilean winemaking team of Andres Basso and Rodrigo Gonzalez, carry on Fred’s vision and legacy with the Christmas Red, Christmas White and Glogg wines. Christmas Red wine is red wine steeped with cinnamon, orange and lemon peel, clove, allspice and nutmeg while the Christmas White features cardamom, cinnamon, oranges and clove. Lynfred also features a Glogg wine that is fortified with Port wine, and quite frankly, even better than grandma’s homemade Glogg! The Lynfred mulled wines are easy to serve; open the bottle, simmer the wine in a pan or crock pot and serve (did we mention how delicious the house will smell?). The Lynfred Christmas ($10) and Glogg ($12) Wines are available at Lynfred Winery in Roselle. The winery is on extended holiday hours and is open daily from 9 am to 9 pm through December 23rd. ### Lynfred Winery is the oldest and largest, continuously-operating, family winery in Illinois, producing over 70 varietals and 30,000 cases of fine wine per year. Since 1979, Lynfred Winery has offered guests the finest vintages, gourmet cuisine and luxurious lodging. Lynfred is truly one of Chicago’s most unique attractions. 15 South Roselle Road, Roselle, IL 60172 630.529.9463

     
  • Flexible M.B.A. students discover that profitability, sustainability can co-exist Dec 8, 2014 4:54 PM
    To meet rapidly growing demands for food, fresh water, timber, fiber and fuel, humans have changed ecosystems more rapidly and extensively during the last 50 years than in any comparable time in history, according to a study commissioned by the United Nations. These changes have contributed to gains in human well-being and economic development, but at a cost to future generations in the form of potential disease, abrupt alterations in water quality, the creation of “dead zones” in coastal waters, the collapse of fisheries, shifts in regional climate, and the degradation of tropical forests, coral reefs and dryland ecosystems. The social and environmental challenges humans face in the next 50 years is daunting. But amidst the growing crisis, companies have discovered an opportunity to do business in a way that has a positive social, environmental and financial impact. Companies that have the foresight to become sustainable leaders of tomorrow will be rewarded by record business opportunities and profitability. The Sustainable Business and Leadership concentration in the Flexible Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) program at Benedictine University is training tomorrow’s sustainable leaders today. It is one of only two such concentrations available through the nearly two dozen Chicago-area colleges and universities that offer an M.B.A. degree. The concentration focuses on the need for sustainability and profitability. “Too often the need for profit in business is excluded during discussion of sustainability,” said Mark Kozak, M.B.A., business consultant and adjunct professor in the M.B.A. program at Benedictine. “The Sustainable Business and Leadership concentration at Benedictine emphasizes the balance between the needs of business to make a profit while demonstrating concern for the environment. “Those are the three P’s of sustainability … people, planet and profit,” he added. The Sustainable Business and Leadership concentration provides students with an understanding of the broad impact of sustainability, strategic opportunities to make sustainability profitable, and integrate sustainability principles, thinking and action throughout their organizations. Among the courses from which students may choose are “Essentials of Sustainable Leadership,” “Developing Sustainable Leaders,” “Leading Sustainable Organizations,” “Understanding the New Revolution in Sustainability” and “Sustainability as a Driver for Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Market Growth.” The Sustainable Business and Leadership concentration at Benedictine differs from programs elsewhere because it is business-centric. “The program is business-focused, as opposed to strictly talking about environmental or people issues,” Kozak said. “Those aspects are important and integral to the whole concept of sustainability, but we lead with a business focus.” The program is most beneficial to professionals who work in the environmental, health and safety areas of business, as well as those in related regulatory and technical fields. “The concentration is a benefit to anyone looking to gain greater perspective on working with others,” Kozak said. “Through a discussion of sustainability, those who strongly support capitalism, environmentalism and social concerns can work together to understand each other’s needs and chart a path that achieves all three.” Benedictine also offers Sustainable Business and Leadership certificate program for students who are unable to complete the M.B.A. program but want to expand their knowledge in the subject area and add a meaningful credential to their resume. “The flexible M.B.A. program at Benedictine offers numerous opportunities for students to expand their skills in an array of interests, one of which is in the area of sustainability,” said Ricky Holman, J.D., assistant professor and chair, Graduate Business Administration. To learn more about the Sustainable Business and Leadership concentration in the M.B.A. program or the Sustainable Business and Leadership certificate program at Benedictine University, contact the Office of Admissions at (630) 829-6300 or admissions@ben.edu.
