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.

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


  • 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


  • 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)


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.


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.
