The Foodologist was started by me, Dr George R. Ujvary in 2005 and is thought to be South Australia’s longest running food blog. After finishing a number of degrees in Physiology including a PhD from the University of Oxford, I came back to my home town of Adelaide to work for my family business, Olgas Fine Foods which my father started over 35 years ago. During that time I have worked in all areas of the food business and in 2006 became Managing Director of the company.
In addition to working as a food producer within my business, I have completed the Le Cordon Bleu MA in Gastronomy at the University of Adelaide for which I was awarded scholarships from the Australian Association of Food Professionals and the Culinary Trust (part of the IACP) and in 2012 finished an MBA at the University of Adelaide.
I also lecture in Gastronomy at Le Cordon Bleu, Australia as part of their Food and Wine Entrepreneurship degree and sit on the boards of Food South Australia, the peak food body for South Australia and Master Butchers Limited, South Australia’s oldest co-operative and suppliers to the Australian meat industry.
In February, 2015 I was given the opportunity to deliver a TEDx talk at TEDx Flinders University.
