Canada has lost one of its best and brightest chefs. Anthony Sedlak, best known for his show The Main on Food Network Canada, was found unresponsive inside his Vancouver apartment on July 6. There was nothing medical professionals could do to save his life, and he was pronounced dead at the scene. Thus far, the family has refused to get into specifics on how he died, but this morning, they released a statement saying the death was caused by an “undiagnosed medical condition”.
Only twenty-nine, Sedlak was a mainstay on Canadian television, and in recent years, he’d begun branching out into starting his own restaurants and reviving others. His American Cheesecake Co opened earlier this year in Vancouver, and he was in the midst of altering the food at Toronto’s Don Valley Hotel & Suites when he passed late last week.
According to The New York Daily News, Sedlak first began turning heads during his two-year apprenticeship at London’s famed La Tompette. He also starred on Canada’s silver medal-winning team at the World Junior Chef Challenge and later used the experience to springboard onto the airwaves.
Given his fame and age, it seems likely authorities will comment further once information into the cause of death becomes official, but until then, Pop Blend’s thoughts go out to his entire family, as well as all those who enjoyed watching his energetic presence on Food Network Canada. His talent and cheerfulness will be greatly missed.
