The Tozzi family has been cooking Italian food in Enid, Oklahoma for 25 years and was featured in the Enid newspaper in 1993, 1999, 2001 and E-Town Magazine in 2008 and 2009.   After several years of cooking for friends and work associates, they began catering 4 and 5 course dinners at no charge for charities (fund raisers) and Companies.

The following is an example of their cooking activities since 1991:

The Tozzi's - Rick and Brenda- have been joined by their children (Anthony & Victoria - ages now 23 & 20 ) in these cooking adventures.   They have made the art of cooking a family affair.   Their recipes have been handed down from generation to generation - by word of mouth.   In 1993 - Rick finally wrote them down   ( with much assistance from his Banker - Pam Schloeder - Bank Of Oklahoma - Tulsa - who really wrote them down) for others to enjoy.   As with all Chefs who cook by sight, touch and taste, these recipes are as close to "actual" as possible, since in 45 years of cooking, Rick has never measured any of the ingredients.

Since the year 2001 was very busy with 3 fund raiser events, we took 2002 off to regroup.   We built a new home in 1999 - 2000 in order to have the size kitcken and equipment ( commerical grade ) that would make it easier for us to cook for these dinners.   The kitchen has become the focal point of this house - and we spend many hours here as a family cooking our hearts out.  

Before I can let you read these recipes - you must know the answer to the following riddle.

What is the difference between an Italian Chef and an Elephant?


Elephant

About 50 pounds!


If you knew the answer then you can proceed.




Oh what the heck - take a look!
