Same here, it's pretty sad that he was so young and had a future. I watched the Main when it first came out and tried making a few of the things he made, they were

RIP Anthony Sedlak.

I use to live near him and always see him around when he was opening up the Corner Suite Bistro at Thurlow & Smithe.

That guy changed alot in the last few years.

He went from the babyface chubby look on The Main (good show IMO) to dropping alot of weight, all out tattoo, hipster on a bike look when he was opening up the Corner Suite Bistro.

I feel bad for him for opening up that restaurant too. Him and his investors took what seem forever to open up subsequently to fail 8 months later and selling out to what is now Ensemble (Canada Top Chef Dale Mckay)

He was my wife's friend. A talented chef, but self-entitled and ungrateful. Find someone else who used to work with him and ask their opinion; I bet it won't be pretty.

When he made it onto the food network, local papers ran a story about him. They contacted many of his old coworkers and bosses, none of them would even give a comment for the article since it would have been negative.

^^^ seems like thats how it is for semi-prominent chefs if they reached a bit of fame when they were young they become humble after having a few low moments like restaurants close on them or they've been fired a few times etc

heck thats true for most people let alone chefs; that's usually what holds them back from reaching even greater heights of success

Its unfortunate that you are right, but 90% of them are also terrible at their jobs, and have horrendous alcoholism/drug addiction so you can easily weed out the shitty ones pretty fast. I could never fill up one of the kitchens I ran with any less than 40% complete retards. I have heard many things about this guy, lots kinda shitty, but he was pretty successful, so I can imagine a lot of it being jealousy. Either way, someone died real young so its a shame, and a little eye opening.

Yep, and when local small-time DJs keep dying, they always decline to give a cause. Most likely, prescription drugs + alcohol.

I met Anthony Sedlak about a month ago at his new restaurant American Cheesesteak. He was super nice and hooked up a free milkshake. He talked about how he fell in love with the cheesesteak in Philly and wanted to bring it up here. He was also in the middle of filming a new show that was about finding the weirdest food in Canada, kinda like Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmerman.

RIP.

Guess the rumors around town turned out to be true

Celebrity chef Anthony Sedlak died of a drug overdose, coroner’s report finds


Celebrity chef Anthony Sedlak died last summer of a drug overdose and not an unexplained illness, according to a coroner’s report released Friday.

Sedlak made a name for himself on Food Network shows, some of which were set against a local backdrop of the North Shore mountains and False Creek. He got his start at 13 as a bus boy at a Grouse Mountain cafe.

Despite his promising future, Sedlak died at 29 at his home in North Vancouver last July.

At the time, a family statement said he died from complications of an “undiagnosed medical condition.”

A coroner’s report dated Dec. 27, 2012 lists the official cause of death as “intentional ingestion of excessive amounts of cocaine and oxycodone.”

At the time of his death, Sedlak was described by television producer and friend John Ritchie as “a very, very talented guy and a real gentleman.” Friend and fellow chef Trish Magwood said she knew him as a larger-than-life personality and passionate chef who “really knew his stuff.”

The Anthony Sedlak Memorial Career Training Scholarship has been set up in School District 44, to be administered by the North Vancouver High School Education Foundation.

The $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to students interested in pursuing a career in the culinary arts.

I think people are too tolerant these days of illicit drug use and it doesn't bode well for our society. Hard life or party life it just shouldn't be acceptable. Maybe I'm just old fashioned.

I gotta agree. The guy was a coke head, and thats shitty. But to judge him as a bad person for it is unfair. Lots of people have vices, and some are worse than others, but a bad person in my eyes is someone that acts with malice towards others. The two are not necessarily synonymous. I wouldn't say most people do drugs but lots do. Multiply normal drug use x restaurants x vancouver and most is probably a reasonable statement. Theres no reason that a kids going to get his scholarship and be like "oh hey, this guy was an awesome role model so if I get this I should become a coke head too!"

Tend to agree most people do some form of drug.

Know my fair share of lawyers/doctors/chefs and people in the government that semi regularly do drugs. Include mj

I'd say probably 25 don't / 45 casual / 30 hardcore.
