'Tis the season for chef awards. Last week the James Beard Foundation announced the finalists for its 2014 honors; today Food & Wine rolled out the regional lists of "People's Best New Chef Contenders," and there are some familiar faces in the New England category. The Boston-area nominees are chefs Carolyn Johnson (80 Thoreau), Tim Maslow (pictured, of Strip-T's and Ribelle) and Phillip Tang (East by Northeast). But you can scope all the names - which include toques from Providence, Portland and Western Mass - and cast your vote here.
