aktf_tomato-logo_2k13_loChef Ford Fry hosts the fifth annual JCT. Kitchen Attack of the Killer Tomato Festival on Sunday, July 21, from 1 to 5 p.m. This year, more than 40 of the South’s top chefs along with 15 mixologists and more than 30 farmers are teaming up to create the tastiest tomato concoctions and to help raise money for Georgia Organics.

“Attack of the Killer Tomato Festival is absolutely one of my favorite events,” says Fry, owner/chef of JCT. Kitchen & Bar, No. 246 and The Optimist. “I love seeing the creativity of all the participants and I’m looking forward to seeing what this year’s crop of talent comes up with,” he adds.

Tickets are now on sale for $70 per person and can be purchased at this link. Last year’s festival brought in close to $26,000 for Georgia Organics. The festival will once again be held at JCT. Kitchen & Bar, 1198 Howell Mill Road, and spread out over the pedestrian bridge that connects the two sides of Westside Provisions District.
