Albany Tech hosts “Albany's next Titan Chef” competition

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany Tech has crowned its first ever Titan Chef.

Culinary students at Albany Tech competed to be the first Titan Chef.

Cedrick Ward wins the title in a first ever battle between students in the school's culinary program.

The Titan Chef competition is based on the competition in the popular Food Network program "Chopped".

The students had to beat the clock in preparing an appetizer, entree and dessert. Ward says the contest was a lot of fun.

"It was very exciting, just to be in the competition because I've sat back and watched them on TV for so many years, was so exciting. And that win...I can't even explain it," says winner Cedrick Ward.

Head Chef Todd White says he hopes to hold another one in the spring.
