About Me

Aster Fliers

I graduated from Theatre Studies at Utrecht University in december 2016, having previously studied costume design at Utrecht School of Arts. It’s since become obvious that I’m most comfortable somewhere in-between humanities theory and artistic craftspersonship, especially when this intersects with food. I’m currently experimenting with some exciting processes involving fermentation, nut-based cheesemaking and mould (the good kind). I’m also working on an essay bundle, for the hell of it. The truest piece of art I’ve ever created is probably a cashew-based washed-rind Limburger, or at least it’s the most accomplished one, though some more recent experiments with sourdough are slowly but steadily gaining on it.

Work & experience:

My sister and I have been working together as vegan caterers at Zus&Zo since 2009.

Past projects and designs are featured on the portfolio page, including written works with a summary. A more encompassing summary of my MA thesis was published in the 9th issue of Danswetenschap in Nederland.


IELTS says that my English is as good as it can get according to their test: Band 9, Expert User. My French and German are nowhere near as good, but I did take them in high school. My Spanish is purely fictional.
