Plans are taking shape for the Friendship Shelter's 15th annual Dinners Across Laguna and Beyond event — and anyone with a flair for entertaining is invited to hold a dinner to help raise funds for the shelter's programs. Dinners Across Laguna and Beyond are held by volunteer hosts on their choice of three Saturdays in early 2007: Jan. 27, Feb. 4 or Feb. 11. Tickets are $125 per person; every dollar goes to the Friendship Shelter. Co-chairs Gayle Verst and Barbara McMurray have created a flexible format where dinner hosts use their creativity to get friends together for a great cause.

Editor's Note: This is part of an occasional series on home chefs of Laguna Beach. If you could describe Sally Davis Peterson in two words, they would be "good taste." She lives in a beautiful home that she has lovingly remodeled over the years with an elegant décor that reflects her extensive travels. Peterson is a marvelous cook whose food is always tasty and presented with great panache. Equally important is the setting of her table, the composition of the food on the plate and the beauty of the plates themselves, collected from all over the world.

Emily, Terry?s daughter, loves breakfast for dinner and so does Elle?s sweetie, Tim. In fact, lots of people like this rearrangement of the daily dining ritual, but in this town there doesn?t seem to be any place that caters to these antipodal appetites, except for The Pacific Whey Café in Crystal Cove. So, while you might chow down on old-fashioned meatloaf or chicken Florentine marinara, they can dig into bacon and eggs or buckwheat hotcakes. Not only can you have breakfast for dinner, but also you can get homemade chili or beef stroganoff at 10:30 a.m. In addition to the fact that you can order just about everything all day long, the food is pretty tasty, portions are generous and their burger is one of the best in town.

Suzie Harrison It might seem unlikely to match the buzz felt last February in Laguna Beach from the first Art for AIDS: A Tribute to Rock Hudson fund-raiser held at Laguna Art Museum. The event was a benefit to the museum and AIDS Services Foundation Orange County. The big draw was the celebrity supporters, such as Elizabeth Taylor, Michael Jackson and Penny Marshall. But the anticipation is just as high the second time around, for the Feb. 8 event.

Anthony Loesch's firstborn, Maggie, was in preschool when her teacher called him in for a meeting. There might be a slight problem, she said worriedly. "I asked Maggie what you do, and she said you're Jesus Christ. " Loesch replied, "Well, I am - kinda. " Neither joking nor delusional, the Los Alamitos resident clarified that he portrays the central figure of Christianity at the Pageant of the Masters every summer - an activity that he shared with the smart-as-a-whip daughter, who is now 16. For the upcoming season, Loesch, 56, will don Christ's attire and freeze for 90 seconds during the show's conclusion: Leonardo da Vinci's "The Last Supper.

What I would give to spend an afternoon in the kitchen with chef Fabrizio Schenardi. To learn how to make gnocchi so soft and light it makes you forget you're eating something made with potatoes. Or watch Schenardi, 45, executive chef of the Four Seasons Hotel in St. Louis, stir a pot of risotto to non-sticky delight. Schenardi, a native of Turin, in northern Italy, joined his friend Azmin Ghahreman, executive chef and owner of Sapphire Laguna, at the South Coast Highway restaurant Wednesday to prepare an Italian harvest dinner for media members as a preview for the one-night public meal Thursday night.

The Laguna Canyon Conservancy honored Jim Dilley on Monday at Tivoli Terrace. Recognized as the "Father of the Greenbelt, Dilley would have been 100 years old this year. Scott Ferguson donned a bushy mustache to take on the persona of Dilley and recount some of the stories that have become legend in Laguna. Ferguson, as Dilley, said it was great to be there, and not just because the monthly dinner only costs $10, but because of all that has transpired in the greenbelt since a company called Great Lakes Carbon decided to buy up land on the corner of Laguna Canyon and El Toro roads in the early 1970s and develop it. "This was a test of how much a community could limit development," Ferguson said.
