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.

  • Tourists undeterred despite Greek drama
    The Greek economy may face more trouble after voters delivered a defiant no to the terms of a bailout, but tourists remain undeterred and the prospect of rock-bottom prices may even be increasing interest.

  • Southern European bond yields up, but no panic after Greek vote
    Italian, Spanish and Portuguese bond yields each rose 10 to 20 basis points on Monday after an overwhelming Greek vote against EU-prescribed austerity measures that could set Athens on a path out of the euro zone. The moves were modest, within the trading ranges of the past three weeks, as investor faith in the European Central Bank's firewalls protected the weaker euro zone economies. The resignation of Greece's combative Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis was considered a step towards renewed negotiations with creditors, though it remained to be seen how tough a stance Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras would take.
