Gray, General Manager of W Taipei.

It’s the first time to sell the W homemade jam on-the-go which has been popular since the debut of YEN Bar W T Time. The premium western menu includes “Truffle dressed mozzarella, tomato,” “Golden pumpkin salad, corona beer, rice vinegar, plum,” “Beetroot, juniper berry infused Salmon gravlax,” “Prawn, salmon, mushroom, spinach terrine,” “Homemade Mexican chorizo sausage.”  And chef Ponytail makes the French-style breads and sweets, e.g. “Baguette,” “Brioche,” “Truffle cheesecake,” “W jam, pineapple/cassis/mango/granny smith/raspberry/pineapple.” The menu may be adjusted by the weekly ingredients.  

“GQ Taiwan” magazine has advocated “Men’s Style” for years in terms of the every aspect of men’s daily life. In this co-branded event “Farmers Market,” GQ has selected the high quality and exclusive lifestyle products, especially the tableware to present a fashionable table setting.
