Written by Alex Denning on in WP Themes 2 comments

Do you need the perfect food blog WordPress theme to share your recipes with your readers? Whether you’re just starting out or are a seasoned pro, you’ve come to the right place.

We’ve got 20+ of the best food blog WordPress themes that will suit any site. We’ve found the best themes so that you don’t have to.

Here are some of the criteria we used for the WordPress themes when collating our list:

  • Stylish and responsive design: the best food blog WordPress theme for your site needs to look good! Plus, visitors must be able to access your site on desktops, laptops, tablets and mobile devices. A responsive design ensures your site looks good on any of these.
  • Great recipe display: recipes are obviously a key tenet of any food blog. The theme must let you easily display recipes in an easy-to-follow way.
  • Lots of space for images: food blogs rely on bold imagery to show off dishes. You need a theme which lets you show off images alongside your recipes.
  • Social media integration: let readers connect with you on Facebook and Instagram! Good social media integration is a must.
  • Customization options: you don’t want exactly the same design as thousands of other food blogs. Customization options are a must.

With these criteria in mind, here are our favorite food blog WordPress themes. You’ll find each listed with a link to the theme’s demo and download or purchase page. If you have any queries or other theme suggestions, then let us know in the comments at the bottom of the post.


1. Foodica

Foodica is perfect for creating food blogs. The minimal responsive design places heavy emphasis on images, so you can utilize the big and bold imagery that makes for popular food blog content. The recipe and method integration is easy to use, looks great and makes it easy for readers to follow along with recipes and check off steps as they go. After each recipe you can show an email subscription box which will convert your readers to subscribers.

Customization options with Foodica are extensive, with 9 color schemes to choose from and a visual customizer that lets you get the precise color and font choices to match your branding. You can also customize the homepage layout and featured slider, embed your Instagram photos with an elegant slider and make use of the WooCommerce integration to sell products from your blog.

2. Foodie Pro

Foodie Pro is a minimal food blog theme in the traditional blog style. Recipe integration relies on an external plugin and looks good, although there’s no way for readers to check off the method as they follow along. You get to choose between multiple different layouts and customize colors, but you’ll need to design these yourself as the theme deosn’t have alternative color schemes pre-built. You’re not able to easily customize the homepage, but you do get plenty of widget areas and a couple of page templates.

3. Soledad Food

Soldedad offers a clean, crisp and responsive layout. The homepage lets you show off bold images of your recipes and the “mega menu” feature lets you show off a lot of content in the menus, which is useful for sites with a lot of recipes. The big downside to this theme, however, is its multipurpose nature: the theme has a huge number of different layouts available and this mutlipurposeness means the theme isn’t well optimised for food blogging; instead it’s optimised for the lowest common denominator. Choose this if you love the design, but otherwise stay clear.

4. Neptune

Neptune is for food blogs full of content, with a scrapbook style layout filling the homepage with recipes. The recipes look good, splitting method and ingredients into different columns and making full use of the available space. You’ll need a lot of content to make this work, and this is more for recipe aggregators than food blogs, but Neptune is worth a look.

5. Cook’d Pro

Cook’d Pro is a very modern food blog WordPress theme. You can present three featured recipe as portrait images at the top of the homepage, and below add newsletter signup and a regular blog layout. The theme runs on the Genesis framework (required to purchase separately), so you’re left with inflexible customisation options.

Petit offers a beautiful and clean minimalist (and responsive) design. This theme is built for recipes and is perfect for showing them off. You can easily show readers the cooking time, difficulty and serving number, as well as show featured recipes with a neat homepage slideshow.

8. Daily Dish Pro

Daily Dish Pro is modelled on a daily print publication, featuring a bold layout with high-contrast headings and sections for different types of recipes. The theme uses the Genesis theme framework (which you also need to purchase). Genesis is SEO-optimised but leads to relatively inflexible designs and layouts.
