Question: Who are just a few of the awesome chef’s showing up at this years Attack of The Killer Tomato Festival?

Yes ladies and gents … it is that time again.  Thanks to the good folks over at Georgia Organics, the Killer Tomatoes are back.  Just like last year, the event will land at the Westside Urban Market, home to places like JCT Kitchen and Star Provisions.  From 1pm – 5pm on Sunday August 8th, you’ll be able to indulge yourself in a sea of all things red.

To further wet your whistle, check out Savory Exposure’s recap of last years event.  When you’re done with that, go check out Running With Tweezers flickr set.  Tickets are $45 for Georgia Organics members and $50 for those of you who are not.  However, prices go up this Saturday (to $65)… so I suggest you buy them now! Full details just after the jump!

So the specifics are this: A slew of participating chefs are getting together with some excellent tomato farmers in order to show the versatility of this delicious fruit.  The event is hosted by JCT Kitchen and their executive chef … one Ford Fry.  In addition to food, music, and cocktails, there will be a Tomato King/Queen … um … AWESOME!!!  All of this information is available on the Georgia Organics event page.

Anyway, the list of participants is impressive to say the least and includes some of my favorite area chefs.  Even Hugh Acheson, who hails from Athens, is bringing his talents to the game while we await the opening of Empire State South.
