Chef/Restaurateur Ford Fry of JCT. Kitchen & Bar is hosting a tasty event to celebrate some of the South’s best chefs, farmers and mixologists, who will join forces to benefit Georgia Organics for the fourth annual JCT. Kitchen Attack of the Killer Tomato Festival on Sunday, July 22 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
This spectacular event brings together some of the South’s best chefs, farmers and mixologists to join forces, while benefitting Georgia Organics, a non-profit working to integrate healthy, sustainable, and locally grown food into the lives of all Georgians.
The festival will once again be held at JCT. Kitchen & Bar and will spread out over the Westside Provisions District bridge to feature 34 chef participants and 12 mixologists. Each featured chef partners with a local farmer to create a yummy tomato dish for attendees to sample, while the featured mixologists will stir up their own signature cocktails with tomatoes. Festival-goers and high-profile judges such as actor David Miller, who played Mason Dixon in the original “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes” movie, will be choosing the best dish and best beverage.
The festivities will also include live entertainment from The Spazmatics and local chef band Five Bone Rack.
