Gordon Ramsay has topped a list of Britain's richest chefs, released by The Independent.
Television earnings, book sales and restaurant turnover have all been taken into consideration for the list.
Ramsay, who is worth £67m, has nine restaurants in London and two abroad, although both are run by franchises.
He is expected to expand into the USA with restaurants in New York and Florida later this year. He has also written 12 books and starred in five television shows.
Star of Jamie's School Dinners,Jamie Oliver, comes second on the list. A string of television shows and books, as well as his advertising deal with Sainsbury's, which it is estimated earns him £1m a year, means he is worth £58m.
Other chefs on the list include owner of Norwich City FC Delia Smith and Heston Blumenthal, whose restaurant The Fat Duck, in Bray, Berskshire was voted the best in the world by Restaurant magazine in 2005.
