Remembering the late Celebrity Chef Anthony Sedlak's life in the kitchen

Anthony Sedlak had been riding high in the last few years when Steve Venegas, then a writer for the Vancouver Observer, met him. After winning the second year of the reality Show Super Star Chef Challenge, Sedlak had landed his own cooking show, The Main, on Food Network Canada. Now that the first season was behind him, and a cookbook was set to release within days, Anthony was settling back into his life in Vancouver. And Venegas arrived to do a profile on the rising star.

 Today, Sedlak has died at the age of 29, and Venegas is an associate producer for CBC Radio 3.  But when they met in the summer of 2008, they were both just getting going.
