Food Network host and winner of the Superstar Chef Challenge Anthony Sedlak has been found dead, The Ottawa Citizen is reporting.

Sedlak is said to have died suddenly of an undiagnosed medical condition and was found in his home in Vancouver on July 6. His body was found at approximately 7 p.m., but the exact time of death is still to be determined.

The press release issued did not give a cause of death.

Sedlak is best known for hosting The Main on Food Network Canada, and released a cookbook with the same title. Earlier this year, Sedlak co-opened the American Cheesesteak Co. in Vancouver.

The Toronto Sun reports that Sedlak made headlines last November when he failed to make a scheduled appearance at a food and beer show in Ottawa.

"The Sedlak family thanks Anthony's fans and associates for all their love, devotion and condolences," the press release said.

Sedlak was 29 at the time of his death.
