StudioPress Sites
Web Hosting

I have this theme which I bought from StudioPress and I love it. I play with it everyday making blogs and it really is so very versatile.

I wanted an awesome WordPress & Genesis Food theme for years. Then this baby was born. It was upgraded recently resulting in the new Foodie Pro.

I review and inspect a lot of food blog child themes and this is one of my favorites.

Disclosure: This page contains affiliate links to the Foodie Pro related pages. We only recommend brands we use and trust and using our links helps support what we do. Thanks.

I setup a site from scratch and thoroughly examined what was inside of this one. Here’s what I found:

PROS:

  • Visual Recipe Gallery Page has built in functionality
  • 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 which is amazing!
  • 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

CONS:

  • 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)

SETUP

To use this theme, you’ll need a self-hosted WordPress site. If you don’t have one, SiteGround is recommended.

Foodie Pro is child theme for Genesis.

CONCLUSION:

I’m guessing by now, you want the final word. 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, awesomely enough, StudioPress has a 30-day guarantee.
