Hello Ohad The function takes a dictioanry so in the format() you have to unzip the dict, you don't have to call the function

favorite_food(**{"name": "Kenneth", "food": "tacos"})

This line is in plus, though you used something here which solves the quiz, the


Also you deleted something from the code, the ''name" and "food" attributes, that it should be there in order to be able to extract the dictionary. So all you have to do, pass the ** in the format()


I hope this helps you. Happy coding
