Alice Ann Huberman

Jan 15, 1942-Sep 1, 2014

Raised in San Francisco, Alice attended Washington High School, during which time she was very active in B'nai B'rith and had many friends. She attended UC Berkeley, and participated in the Free Speech Movement, both as activist and journalist. A few years after graduating, she moved to the East coast, where, after spending time in Morocco, she developed an intense interest in batik cloth manufacture, which led to a small business and a book she co-authored, "Batik in Many Forms". Becoming disillusioned with the fashion business, she shifted her focus to cooking, and spent considerable time in Italy refining her craft. She owned and operated a restaurant in Warwick, NY, and worked as chef and caterer in NYC for many years.
Alice relocated to SF in 1996, to care for her mother Jane, and continued to work as a chef, including Taste Catering (Teatro ZinZanni dinner design and production). After Jane passed away in 2010, Alice moved to Oakland, where her interests included bridge, water exercise, and, of course, food.
Daughter of Moe and Jane Huberman, she is survived by siblings Mary, Robert, and Barbara (Liskov) and husband Nate; nephew Moe Liskov, his wife Melissa and daughter Miranda.
A celebration of her life will be held October 18th from 4 to 7 pm in Oakland. If interested in attending, please contact: [email protected]
