The Richest Chefs Of the World
When we talk about celebrities we often relate the word to sports stars, Hollywood personalities or individuals from the entertainment industry without realizing that the people who feed these individuals are also celebrity chefs. They are known for their culinary skills and are ranked among the richest chefs of the world.
When the richest of the world is considered one of the first names that springs to mind are that of Gordon Ramsay who has featured on the list of 100 richest celebrities published by Forbes. Gordon Ramsay undoubtedly featured on the list but he has been featured on the list for reasons other than his culinary skills. Ramsay is still not in the position where he can make the cake, have it and eat it too. As far as culinary skills are concerned Ramsay is just one more name among the richest chefs of the world. We will now take a look at some of the others.

Gordon Ramsay – net worth $175 million
