The full-bodied, sweet, and refreshing milk produced at the Hikami Dairy in Tanba-Hikami, a town adjacent to Sanda, is the result of the loving care given its cows, and the chef's first encounter with Hikami milk inspired him to create Koyama pudding. As it is baked for an extended period at a low temperature, the pudding has an especially creamy and light texture. Spoon it into your mouth, and the pudding melts almost at once, filling your senses with the rich flavor of the milk. By decreasing the number of eggs, and making the most of the delicious milk, Koyama realized a pudding that is full of body yet retains a pure after-taste. Packaged in a milk bottle-like container, the pudding tastes even better when eaten with the special long spoon that comes with it. With seasonal variations that include strawberry, cheese, chestnut, chocolate, and mango, the pudding has proven unexpectedly popular with male diners.
