VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Canadian celebrity chef Anthony Sedlak has died at the age of 29.
Sedlak's family released a statement Monday saying he collapsed this past Friday from an undiagnosed medical condition and his body was found in his North Vancouver apartment.
Sedlak was best-known as the host of Food Network Canada's show "The Main," and a judge on "Family Cook Off," as well as author of the Canadian bestseller cookbook, "The Main."
Sedlak won a silver medal representing Canada at the World Junior Chef Challenge in New Zealand and the Food Network's Superstar Chef Challenge at age 23, before hosting his own show for four seasons.
The statement from the Sedlak family thanks his fans and associates for all their love and condolences, and says a private funeral service will be held in Vancouver.
