Not entirely comprehending string formatting with dictionaries, or the challenge

What is another way to explain this challenge, it seems to be eluding me?

def favorite_food(name=None, food=None): return "Hi, I'm {name} and I love to eat {food}!".format(**dict)

dict = {"name": "Garri", "food": "RAMEN"}

Hi there,

Are you able to link to the challenge you'e referring to? Are you getting any errrors or feedback about the values the code is returning?

It looks to me like you've simply got a function that receives 2 arguments, the values of which are returned to it by the dictionary with the name of dict.

So, rather than hard coding the values in your function, they receive them via the dictionary

Edit: Finally you'll want to print the message to the console with

print( favorite_food() );
