The food world recently lost a young talent and rising star in the celebrity chef world.

Canadian celebrity chef Anthony Sedlak has died at the age of 29. His 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.
