ROLLIN IN DOUGH

GOLD BEACH – For three years, Jim "Jimmy" Dickerson kept asking the question about purchasing Rollin' In Dough Bakery & Bistro.

Finally, Chef Patti Joyce relented and handed him keys to the business and Dickerson immediately went to work to revamp the restaurant's interior with the colors, charm and character of a French countryside.

"I contemplated retirement, but my customers continue to inspire me," Joyce said about remaining the chef at the eatery. "Cooking is my greatest pleasure. It comes from the heart. So, after being in operation for seven years, I felt it was time to breathe new life into the business, and I trusted Jimmy."

Dickerson recruited his friend Kelli Ryan to help him.

He graduated from of the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. She is an accomplished painter and known for her restorative work at international museums and The Vatican. Together, they set out to create a banquet for the eyes – a compliment to Joyce's feast for the palate.

No detail was overlooked. Counters, shelves and the pastry display case all received a quaint Provence-inspired makeover. Chair pads were recovered with toile (French: cloth) – a fabric of white or beige background adorned with repeating pictures, usually a scene. The bathroom dcor became its own version of Claude Monet's "The Water Lily Pond".

Across the walls, several inspiring French quotations appeared. There are Italian ones too to reflect Joyce's family heritage. Lastly, Chef Patti's collection of gifts – received from grateful patrons – was carefully arranged throughout.

In addition to the restaurant's new look, Joyce updated her menu to reflect customer input and changing habits toward lighter eating. She continues to utilize organic and Oregon products whenever possible.

"Trends change. I strive to respond, maintain the quality and keep an integrity of flavors," Joyce said.

Rollin' In Dough Bakery and Bistro is located at 94257 North Bank Road in Gold Beach and is and open for lunch, Tuesday through Saturdays, from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Reservations are recommended by calling (541) 247-4438. For menu information visit http://www. Rollin-In-Dough.com.

  • Europe stocks stumble, dollar lifted by U.S rate view
    European shares fell in thin trade on Monday while the dollar powered ahead after U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen indicated that the central bank was poised to raise interest rates this year. Investor concerns about Greece's debt problems and a poor regional and local election result by Spain's ruling People's Party also weighed on the euro and European shares. The pull-back in European stocks mirrored losses on Wall Street on Friday after Yellen suggested the Fed was ready to act if the economy kept improving as expected, though a raft of recent data has suggested it is growing only modestly in the second quarter.
  • Fed's Fischer: Too much weight placed on Fed's first rate hike
    U.S. Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer said it was "misleading" to give so much importance to the Fed's first interest rate hike since the process of returning to a more normal level will take a few years. Fischer, speaking in Israel, said that while markets largely expect the first rate hike in September, it will be determined by data and not by date. "What we are thinking about is raising the interest rate from zero, which is an ultra expansionary monetary policy to a quarter percent, which is an extremely expansionary monetary policy.
