Forbes.com recently released a list of top-earning celebrity chefs, and blogland has been abuzz. It's worth noting the staggering disparity of salaries between head cheese Rachael Ray, who comes in first with $18 million a year (yum-o!) and Anthony Bourdain, who rounds out the list at number 10 with $1.5 million a year. And that two of those honored have ties to the San Francisco restaurant scene: Wolfgang Puck (number two; $16 million; Postrio) and Tom Colicchio (number eight; $2 million; 'Wichcraft).
