Jamie Oliver has beaten the likes of Delia Smith, Fanny Cradock, Egon Ronay and Gordon Ramsay to become the world's most influential foodie, according to a poll.


The Good Food magazine survey features culinary luminaries such as Nigella Lawson, Marco Pierre White, Madhur Jaffrey and Heston Blumenthal.


TV legend Delia Smith, who has sold more than 18 million copies of her recipe books and famously sparked a 10% rise in egg sales with her How to Cook TV series, snapped up second place in the poll.


Egon Ronay, the Hungarian food critic acclaimed for his restaurant guides, is third.


Michelin-starred Gordon Ramsay, who is launching restaurants in New York, Los Angeles and Florida after making his name in the US with Hell's Kitchen, is in fourth place.


Elizabeth David, acclaimed for bringing Mediterranean tastes and ingredients including olive oil to Britain after the Second World War, scooped fifth place.


Keith Floyd was next, followed by Raymond Blanc, Fanny Craddock, Nigella Lawson and Ken Hom in 10th place.


Good Food magazine editor Gillian Carter said: "Jamie Oliver has really struck a chord with his campaigns to bring school dinners up to scratch and train unemployed youngsters as chefs.


"It's this work, combined with Jamie's down to earth approach to cooking that has secured him his place as world's most influential foodie."


A total of 5,437 people took part in the poll which was carried out by Good Food magazine
