Anthony Sedlak was a world-renowned, 29-year-old chef with his whole life ahead of him. When he was just 14 years old, Sedlak discovered his passion for food and began working at the Grouse Mountain cafeteria in British Columbia. After working his way through school, Sedlak graduated from the Culinary Art Program at Vancouver Carson Graham Secondary School and embarked on what has been described as a very successful and inspirational career.
News of Anthony’s death this week has come as a huge shock to family, friends and fans of the young cook and have many wondering what happened.
Sedlak’s family released a statement over the weekend confirming the death of their son. According to the family, the ambitious chef collapsed Friday and was later found in his North Vancouver later that night around 7pm. The cause of death is somewhat unknown, although most reports list the cause of death as “an undiagnosed medical condition.”
Anthony was best known as the host of Food Network Canada’s The Main and a popular judge on Family Cook-Off. He spent much of his time in the public eye and was scheduled to host a cooking session with E! Canada next week.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Anthony Sedlak’s family and friends.
