Jonathan Gardner, the owner of Sweet Rice Dream, is a New York native who wanted to share east coast-style rice pudding with people in Taiwan. Not only does Jonathon pay close attention to the flavor of his creations, but he also is meticulous about the preparation and storage methods of the ingredients. Though the ingredients are all available in Taiwan, Jonathan had to do a lot of research and prep work so that his pudding would stay fresh in the ever-humid climate of the island. He notes that, besides being another tasty dessert option, rice pudding is also a bit healthier than other desserts out there. --By Josie Wu, translated by Ann Lee

B. At Sweet Rice Dream, there are about twenty different ingredients you can add to your rice pudding, including fruits, nuts, and cookies.
