Tag: Attack of the Killer Tomato Festival
The Attack of the Killer Tomato Festival returned to JCT Kitchen yesterday. The crowds were convivial, the heat was blazing, and the cocktails were cold. 5 Bone Rack, the all-chef band that includes Ford Fry, Zeb Stevenson, Ted Lahey, Jamie Adams, and Gary Mennie, turned out to be not that bad. (Who knew that Ford Fry could almost play the solo for "American Girl?") Oh, and there were truckloads of ripe tomatoes in most every variation imaginable.
They’re big, red, and juicy and headed straight for Atlanta. The fourth annual JCT Kitchen Attack of the Killer Tomato Festival is this Sunday, July 22, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Chefs, farmers, and mixologists are banning together to benefit Georgia Organics and celebrate a dedication to locally grown produce.
ATL Food Chatter: July 5, 2011 (To receive the Chatter and other culinary tidbits directly in your inbox, sign up for our weekly dining newsletter) What do you get when you combine some of the South’s top chefs, mixologists, and farmers; the peak of growing season; and good music, all in one location for a good cause? The third annual Attack of the Killer Tomato Festival, which will be held July 17 from 1–5 p.m. at Westside Urban Market. The annual fundraiser for Georgia Organics has morphed into an experience unlike any of the ATL’s growing number of food events. The combination of the creative uses of tomatoes, boisterous crowds spurred on by some rocking bands like the Plasmatics and high-profile judges—including Andrew Knowlton of Bon Appetit, Food & Wine restaurant editor Kate Krader, and ATL’s dynamic dietician, Carolyn O’Neil—produce a unique alchemy that made the Killer Tomato Festival a must-attend.
Last Sunday, the sold-out second annual Attack of the Killer Tomato Festival—a fund raising event for Georgia Organics hosted by JCT Kitchen and its top toque, Ford Fry—saw many of brightest culinary talents from Atlanta and nearby towns team up with some of the region’s top tomato farmers to produce an afternoon of creative tomato-inspired dishes and cocktails.
