Attack of the Killer Tomato Festival 2015 Featured

Ford Fry’s JCT. Attack of the Killer Tomato Festival at Westside Provisions

District Gears Up for July 19!

What: Chef Ford Fry’s seventh annual JCT. Kitchen & Bar Attack of the Killer Tomato Festival hits the

streets of the Westside Provisions District on Sunday, July 19 from 1-5 p.m. More than 50 chefs and

mixologists are ramping up their best tomato-filled recipes for the competition, a fundraiser for The

Giving Kitchen and Georgia Organics. Plus, Beastie Boys and Sublime tribute band Ill Communication and Five Bone Rack, Fry’s all-chef band, will take to the stage.

 

Fry is chef and managing partner of JCT. Kitchen & Bar, King + Duke, no. 246, St. Cecilia, Superica, The

El Felix, The Optimist, and the soon-to-open Marcel: The European-style steakhouse opens in the weeks

leading up to the festival, and guests can check it out during the Festival as the restaurant space

becomes stomping grounds for several chefs and mixologists.

“"I can feel it: This year will be crazier than ever. Plus, rumor has it that Ill Communication will be

blowing it up Brooklyn-style,” said Fry.

 

Last year’s Festival generated more than $120,000 for The Giving Kitchen and Georgia Organics.

“We love the Attack of the Killer Tomato Festival because it celebrates our agrarian roots. It focuses on

one of the beloved crops Georgia Organics farmers grow so perfectly: the tasty tomato,” Georgia

Organics Executive Director Alice Rolls said. “It’s a day to stimulate our taste buds and toast to the fun

members of the good food community.”

Tickets are $70/person for general admission and $125/person for VIP tickets, which allow for entry at

noon. Tickets are $65/person for Georgia Organics members. Tickets are $60/person with purchase of a

Tomato Fest meal from Garnish & Gather. Please note that the event is rain or shine.

Location: 1198 Howell Mill Road, Atlanta, GA 30318.
