THE BELL OF THE BALL
This September, conclude your summer with a final barbecue bash in Washington, DC, at the Belay & Bell BBQ. Hosted by lifestyle blogger and chef Sara Lovestyle in celebration of her newly launched cooking product line Belay & Bell, this barbecue will be the first of what this serial entrepreneur hopes to become an annual event. Catered by the chef herself and prepped with Belay & Bell rubs and sauces, the barbecue will feature demonstrations on how to use her flavorful ingredients to spice up common grill favorites. Attendees will sample a menu of meaty mainstays like ribs and sausages, plus plant-based picks like grilled cauli-bites and veg skewers. For this Ethiopean American influencer, food is a large part of her culture, and Belay & Bell is inspired by the flavors of her upbringing. “The great thing about food is in order to learn more about it, you have to interact with it,” says Lovestyle. “I’m eager for people to interact with the brand, taste the flavors and give me feedback.” For more details, visit saralovestyle.com.
