21 Richest Chefs in The World

Although a little questionable about how some of these celebrities are actually classed as chefs, this infographic from Shsonline lays out who they believe are the 21 of the richest chefs in the world.

Alan Wong sits at the top of the list of the richest chefs in the world with a net worth of $1.1 billion followed by the two brits Jamie Oliver ($235 million) and Gordon Ramsay ($118 million). The best known chef from the fine dining perspective has to be the master of restaurant Alain Ducasse who sits at 10th on the list with a net worth of $12 million. Wolfgang Puck ranks at 4th with $75 million.

Of course, the likes of Rachel Ray ($60 million) and Paula Deen ($16 million) also make the list of richest chefs in the world but it seems a push to class either of them as true chefs.

Here is the full list and infographic: we guess it's all down to opinion.
