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

Need help for Unpacking dictionary challenge

I don't know what is wrong with the code below. I am getting the correct result in REPL but not on the challenge window. I am getting this error: favorite_food() missing 1 required positional argument: 'food'. My code as below;

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

result=favorite_food(**{'name':'Ricky', 'food':'Pizza'}) print(result)

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

result=favorite_food(**{'name':'Saurabh', 'food':'Pizza'})

All you need to do for this challenge is pass the arguments to "format". You definitely don't want to change the function signature (in this case, the number of arguments it takes).
