"Since their first pop-up in December 2013, Blind Tiger has attracted a loyal following of regulars who make these dinners routine. Their incredible food becomes a bonding agent and an emulsifier; bringing people from all backgrounds and all eating habits to the table."
"Shane Stanbridge and Marie Chia met while going to school at the Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts, where they learned how to cater to special dietary restrictions and studied the techniques and benefits of cooking plant-based meals. After working at vegan, raw and gluten free restaurants such as Millennium in San Francisco, Pure Food and Wine in New York, and Michelin-starred establishments in San Francisco and Paris, the duo decided to form S+M as a way to create beautiful and sustainable dishes. Their current supper club series, The Blind Tiger, fuses quality local produce that is prepared using organic beer from Bison Brewing, and takes place in the Bay Area on every last Sunday. The locations, which can be held anywhere in San Francisco and its neighboring towns are sent to ticket holders as the dinner approaches, and the chefs sometimes host meals at their Oakland loft. Events are often BYOB, but Stanbridge and Chia do offer suggested pairings. Contact them here to join the mailing list.
"A collaboration between Shane Stanbridge and Marie Chia, S&M Vegan serves flavorful vegan food, and while their supper club rotates themes, the dishes are typically centered around the cofounding chefs’ heritages, with Asian and European flavors taking center stage."
