NO MATTER HOW YOU SAY IT, THIS IS ONE FUN FESTIVAL
BY: Karon Warren
It’s been a decade since noted Atlanta chef and restaurateur Ford Fry kicked off the first Attack of the Killer Tomato Festival, a yearly shindig benefiting Georgia Organics that features all sorts of tomato-based eats and drinks from dozens of cooks and mixologists. “For this 10th year of the festival, we’re bringing it back home where it all began: JCT. Kitchen,” says Fry, who believes it’s important to take time to recognize the farmers because without their contributions, chefs couldn’t do what they do. “Other than celebrating them while relaying to our guests the importance of using the right ingredients, the day is meant to just be a great time with good food, cocktails and live music.” Whipping up the tomato-centric bites will be chefs such as E.J. Hodgkinson of King + Duke and Pano Karatassos of Kyma. Providing the tunes is G. Love & Special Sauce, a Philly-based alternative, blues and hip-hop group.
