Rising Canadian Celebrity Chef Dead At 29
A Canadian celebrity chef that was a fixture on Food Network Canada has died at the age of 29.
Anthony Sedlak collapsed last Friday from an undiagnosed medical condition and his body was found in his North Vancouver apartment. He was best-known as the host of Food Network Canada’s show “The Main,” and a judge on “Family Cook Off.” Sedlak also was the author of the Canadian bestselling cookbook, “The Main.”
A rising chef, Sedlak won a silver medal for Canada at the World Junior Chef Challenge in New Zealand at the age of 23.
A private funeral service will be held in Vancouver.
In a written statement Food Network Canada said Sedlak was a “much loved member of the Food Network family, entertaining and inspiring fans” adding that his death was “a terrible loss.”
“Family Cook Off” co-judge Trish Magwood wrote:
“He had an infectious enthusiasm and we had so much fun working together and doing what we love to do. Anthony was a passionate cook and knew his stuff. And he loved to do TV. But mostly, he loved his family and buddies and we miss him greatly. My thoughts are with his family.”
