What to do ?

where am I wrong ? Please provide suggestions along with some coding instructions

# Example:
# values = [{"name": "Michelangelo", "food": "PIZZA"}, {"name": "Garfield", "food": "lasagna"}]
# string_factory(values)
# ["Hi, I'm Michelangelo and I love to eat PIZZA!", "Hi, I'm Garfield and I love to eat lasagna!"]

template = "Hi, I'm {name} and I love to eat {food}!"
def string_factory(**kwargs):
    values = [{"name":"Avtar","pulses":"Maa di Daal"}], [{"name":"Talwinder","pulses":"Chole"}]
    edibles = ("Hi,I'm {} and love to eat {}".format(values(name,pulses)))

I made a mistake in my previous answer. Here's what you're looking for.. Apologies.

def stringer(arr):
     new_arr = []
     for item in arr:
             new_arr.append(template.format(name=item['name'], food=item['food']))
     return new_arr

how the for loop is accepting two variables at the same time 'this_name' and 'this_food' as in " for this_name, this_food in item.items() "
