I like this theme. There, I said it.
I review and inspect a lot of food blog child themes and this is one of my favorites. So much in fact that I created an extensive guide on setting up this theme and how to customize it to your style.

I setup a site from scratch and thoroughly examined what was inside of this one. Here’s what I found:
- Visual Recipe Gallery Page Functionality is Built-in
- This theme now includes a way to style multiple recipe/category pages!
- Allows custom retina-ready logo upload
- Built-in Widget Features
- Built-in ad spaces
- Already includes styling for eNews widget and easy recipe (huge!)
- Allows Font Color Changes with a Visual Editor (no coding necessary!)
- Allows Font Typography Changes with the Visual Editor
- Simple, lean, fast, sexy
- Mobile responsive
- Styled Mobile Menu
- Shows an Email Sign-up At Top if desired
- You will still need to work to make your site look styled differently from other Foodie sites
- The mobile styling on the recipe page can be tricky to alter
- It’s more expensive than other premium themes
- Pagination isn’t perfect on the home page (but, from a developer standpoint, makes sense)
And I’ll gladly take you from a blank slate to a slick looking site with my video tutorials on the Master Setup and Customization Guide.
I’m guessing by now, you want the nitty gritty. Here’s my simple advice:
If this style appeals to you (the simple, clean, streamlined design), I’d suggest that this theme is one of the best currently available. If somebody came to me with a freelance project to design a food blog, I would strongly consider this theme as a starting point.
Plus, give it a whirl and if it is a fit for you. If not, StudioPress has an awesome 30-day guarantee.
