    The foundation also gave a nod to two Charlotte chefs — Greg Collier with Loft & Cellar in Charlotte and Joe Kindred, co-owner and chef at Kindred. They’re among 20 semifinalists vying for the Best Chef in the Southeast award. 

    Finalists will be announced on March 27, with awards presented in May.
