Python Python Collections (2016, retired 2019) Dictionaries String Formatting with Dictionaries

Need clarification on task.

So, i've tried a bunch of things, and none seem to be working. The code i've entered returns a key error, but i have a feeling that im completely missing the point.

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

Move the variable declaration into the .format() method as an argument. This will turn it into keyword (named) argument instead of a variable declaration.
