This sounds like a fun foodie throwdown! Earlier this week the sister owners and managers of Sassool Cafe, Simone Lawson and Noelle Scott, announced the date for a Sisters vs. Sisters Battle against food bloggers, Paten Carlton and Quinn Bostic from Soul-Full Sisters. This special event will be the first of its kind and will take place at 1705 East located at 1705 E Millbrook Road in North Raleigh. The sisters will faceoff in a cooking competition, using recipes derived from their grandmothers for an epic battle that will benefit the Lucy Daniels Center. The event will take place Thursday, April 2, 2020 from 6pm-10pm.
The competition will be a full sensory experience where the sister duos will tell the stories of their biggest food influences —their grandmothers —through food. The Sisters vs. Sisters Battle pits Lebanese family recipes against Southern home cooking. Each pair of sisters will be preparing 4 courses each to be voted on by the diners. Between each course, the dishes will be explained with heartfelt stories for why that particular dish was chosen. The winner will be announced after the final course.

About the Lucy Daniels Center
The Lucy Daniels Center was founded in 1989 to provide mental health services to children and families in the Raleigh, N.C. area. They serve nearly 700 children and their families each year. The Lucy Daniels Center believes that the earlier a child’s challenges are addressed, the better the chance to help that child develop socially and academically. Their founder, Dr. Lucy Daniels, noted author and psychologist, founded the Lucy Daniels Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to fostering emotional and creative freedom through education, outreach and psychoanalytic treatment and research; and the Lucy Daniels Center for Early Childhood, now known as The Lucy Daniels Center, to promote the emotional development of young children and their parents.
About the Sassool Sisters:
We are Noelle and Simone, and we run the three Sassool restaurants. We both share the passion for our roots and “Sassool’s standard,” ensuring that the tradition will continue. We could not be more opposite, but we have learned a lot working together and have found a synergy. Nothing and no one is left unattended, just like Grandma “Taita” Cecilia would insist. We know the restaurant inside and out, having started working since the age of 15 with our father when he was at Neomonde.
About the Soul-Full Sisters:
We are Paten and Quinn, and we are sister food bloggers and storytellers who just really love food. It all started with us watching, listening, and tasting. We were brought up with the divine instinct that food must be appreciated in its most simplistic form. The dishes we loved the most were the ones with the shortest ingredient list you’d ever seen. We were taught to appreciate fresh food in season. We promise to bring our deep roots and unique flavor combinations to help create long lasting memories and leave your palate comforted and full of soul.
