Lisa Cooper-Holmes is Proprietor/Queen/Choco Boss of the fabulous Haute Chocolate in downtown Montgomery. The journey into chocolate began for Lisa in 1979, here in Cincinnati, when her quest to make the perfect brownie and put a unique spin on chocolate truffles had a confluence. Thus began her opening of a chocolate boutique here in Cincinnati with just two products – brownies and truffles. Lisa and her elves have been tempting Cincinnatians for 25 years, marketing over 60 unique products of her exquisite creation throughout the country. For those who inquire, the logo for Haute Chocolate features a pig – named Reginald. He was inspired by the “truffle pigs” in Europe who sniff out the best truffles for culinary preparation.
