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.

  • Factory activity in Europe, Asia cools; demand lull a concern
    BANGALORE/SYDNEY (Reuters) - Factory activity in Europe and Asia cooled in August after a strong July, as new orders dwindled in the face of escalating tensions in Ukraine and a patchy recovery in China, purchasing managers indexes showed. Despite euro zone manufacturers barely raising their prices, growth in the region slowed slightly more than initially thought, and activity in China's vast factory sector slackened on weak foreign and domestic demand, stoking speculation that further policy stimulus would be needed. "A concerted slowdown in the China, euro zone and UK manufacturing PMIs as the second quarter gets under way raises alarm bells about global demand conditions," said Lena Komileva, chief economist at G+ Economics in London.
  • European investors hold nerve as Russia-Ukraine warnings ratchet up
    European markets cautiously navigated warnings that the conflict in Ukraine was sliding out of control, focusing instead on whether the European Central Bank will strengthen its stimulus plans when it meets this week. Ukraine reported its forces were under fire again from Russian tanks on Monday as fresh signs emerged that the troubles are damaging the euro zone's already-fragile economy. Signs that growth impetus waned in the key industrial engine of Germany, and in Spain and the Netherlands too, is also less than reassuring." Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko warned at the weekend that a "full-scale war" was imminent if Russian troops continued to support pro-Moscow rebels as European leaders threatened new sanctions.
  • U.S. inflation bonds back in vogue
    Fund managers said the rising cost of housing - which accounts for as much as a third or more of various measures of inflation and is outpacing other consumer cost increases - has revived price pressure in the economy.
