Chef’s Best is returning to the Charlotte Convention Center Crown Ballroom on Sept. 5, 2014, and will once again feature Charlotte’s best chefs, helping to raise funds for hunger relief.

A select number of Harris Teeter’s local vendors will sample their products during the reception catered by International Culinary School at the Art Institute of Charlotte.
