21 Richest Chefs in the World

If their passion is making delicious food, making money is probably a side effect they don’t mind. I’m talking about the 21 richest chefs in the world. Thanks to our friends at SHS Online, we have a nifty info-graphic that outlines these chefs’ net worth.

Heading the list is Alan Wong with a whopping net worth of 1.1 BILLION dollars. Yes, that’s billion with a “B”. You may have heard of this guy, as he’s the co-founder of Hawaii Regional Cuisine, won half-a-dozen prestigious culinary awards, and cooks for the President on occasion. To put things into perspective: Alan Wong’s net-worth is higher than rest of the 20 other Chefs on this list, COMBINED, by about 300 million dollars!

The list goes on, including some Chefs that double as TV personalities. Gordon Ramsay, Rachel Ray, and Anthony Bourdain are among the list. Who knew yelling “BAM!” would make Emeril LaGasse 50 million dollars?
