Canadian TV chef Anthony Sedlak is dead. His body was found early Friday evening in his apartment in Vancouver. He was 29.
A rising star, Sedlak was best-known as the host of Food Network Canada’s The Main and judge on Family Cook Off, as well as author of the national bestseller cookbook The Main. His unexpected and sudden death has devastated his family, friends and the culinary community.
When he was 23 years old, the young chef had won the “World Junior Chef Challenge” in Auckland, New Zealand. A little later the same year, he won the “Superstar Chef Challenge” on The Food Network.
In a released statement, the Sediak family thanked fans.
“The Sedlak family thanks Anthony’s fans and associates for all their love, devotion and condolences. A private funeral service for the family will be held in Vancouver. Anthony was loved by many around the globe and his contagious magnanimous spirit will be dearly missed; the family asks that their wish for privacy be respected at this time.”
