  Dear SOS: I recently dined at Mustards Grill in Napa. We had the most delicious crispy calamari with a curried slaw that was out of this world. I'm hoping you can get the recipe for the slaw. I would go there every day if I lived in the area. Thanks, Sarabeth Rothfeld Woodland Hills Dear Sarabeth: We loved the bright flavors and depth of flavor in this so-simple recipe. It works as a perfect side dish, whether you're hosting a formal dinner or having the gang over to watch a little football.

  Warszawa is a wonderfully homey little restaurant that has been quietly serving amazingly sophisticated Polish food in Santa Monica for more than three decades. It may be most famous for its roast duck and pirogi (and its terrific collection of Polish vodkas), but this borscht is simply unbelievable. The layering of flavors — sweet beets, fresh dill, green onions, tangy buttermilk — makes it one of the best any of us has ever tasted. Warszawa's cold borscht Total time: About 1 hour, plus cooling time for the beets Servings: 4 Note: Adapted from Warszawa in Santa Monica Our recipes, your kitchen: If you try any of the L.A. Times Test Kitchen recipes from this week's Food section, please share it with us: Click here to upload pictures of the finished dish.

  Dear SOS: My husband and I have been regulars at Warszawa in Santa Monica for years. On hot days, I dream about their cold borscht, which is perfectly balanced and better than anything my grandmother ever made. Is there any way you could find out their recipe for me? Thank you so much! Susan Hurwitz Arneson Dear Susan: Warszawa's cold borscht is bright, both in color and flavors, vibrant red beets complemented with the gentle tang of buttermilk and fresh cool flavors of dill and cucumber.
