How would i call this

Could someone explain how i would call this code

string_factory.py
def favorite_food(dict):
    return "Hi, I'm {name} and I love to eat {food}!".format(**dict)

To call Sohail's code using the conditions specified in the challenge, we need to pass a dictionary object into the function. In the call below, I create and then pass the dictionary called "myDiet" into favorite_food( ) and print so we can see the resulting string returned.

myDiet = {"name": "Antonio", "food": "Vegetables"}
print(favorite_food(myDiet))

def favorite_food(nome, food):
    val_name = nome
    val_food = food
    print("Hi, I'm {} and I love to eat {}!".format(val_name, val_food))

favorite_food("Antonio", "Vegetables")
