These are our classic Genesis child themes, without the Feast Plugin. Here's what you should know:
- it includes the Genesis Framework
- it's only suitable only for bloggers in their first year whose sole focus should be writing 100 high quality recipe posts
- the reduced price of $19 reflects the value it offers to the Feast Plugin ($249/year)
- it comes with no support (the tutorials have been followed thousands of times, and are complete)
We highly recommend purchasing the Feast Plugin instead of the classic theme, as it contains access to all 5 themes plus modern enhancements, simpler maintenance and updates.

Proper spacing and low visual clutter brings your pictures to life and helps keep your readers engaged in your writing.

All our food blog themes are responsive, and look great no matter what device or screen size you're using. Whether you're on a desktop or laptop, or your readers are browsing for a new recipe on their phone or tablet from the kitchen, the content is properly formatted and easy to read.
We provide the perfect base theme to build out your own color scheme to match your unique voice.

WordPress Gutenberg Food Blog Themes
We're preparing our Feast Plugin for the "Gutenberg" release of WordPress. Here's what you need to know:
- The wordpress post editor will be replaced by the "Gutenberg" editor
- This will change the way your posts are written, from a document-style editor to a "block" style editor (similar to pagebuilders)
- This is similar to an existing functionality you already use today: shortcodes such as [recipe-plugin id="123"]
- Blocks will replace the way many plugins and add-on function in your theme
- The purpose is create a more consistent way to do something, eg. embed a video. There are blocks for:
- custom blocks (eg. recipes!)
- Custom blocks will be used to create recipes, which can tie structured data to your recipes that make them discoverable by search engines and help rank you higher
- Based on early previews, this will make in-page recipe editing much easier
- The update should not break your site, and should not be hard to learn
- The Gutenberg editor adds its functionality by inserting HTML comments into posts you edit with Gutenberg, these HTML comments are ignored by the standard text editor
