Valentine’s Day, observed Sunday, traditionally celebrates affection between lovers. Named after St. Valentine, the holiday historically honored early Christian martyrs and later became associated with romantic love in the 14th century. Today, it is adorned with images of Cupid and white doves (“love birds”) and celebrated by many couples with the exchange of red roses, heart-shaped confections, “Valentine” greetings and intimate gatherings. For singles, it often entails overindulgence of red wine, love-gone-wrong movie marathons and cursing Cupid’s bow and arrow.

The Beach House, one of Laguna?s grand old dames, is having a gastronomic renaissance, brought about by their new executive chef, Michael Ingino. In this case, the rebirth consists of dressing the baby in new clothes instead of tossing it out with the bathwater. At first glance, the menu may appear to be pretty much the same but as you peruse it more carefully, you will notice many inventive and enticing new preparations with a more contemporary flair, while old favorites have been given new life.

cpt-aboutfood09... dinner. What? It wasn't the first thing that leapt to your mind? Well, maybe it should have been. For thousands of years, food has been reputed to have aphrodisiacal properties. According to his memoirs, Casanova fueled his 122 escapades with a breakfast of 50 oysters and a heap of chocolate. There is some basis to the legend. Faced with undernourished populations, the first aphrodisiacs, most notably oysters, had a high nutritional value, rich in phosphorus, iodine and zinc.

In the 1920s, when the road to Laguna was just a dirt lane, Slim Summerville, a Hollywood actor, built a getaway beach house on the sand at Sleepy Hollow, where he eventually retired and spent the rest of his days. That cottage still exists today and is aptly named the Beach House. Slim was a member of the Keystone cops and a featured player in "All Quiet on the Western Front," "Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm" and "Tobacco Road." He was also a director, a writer and an occasional ghost.
