Hello and welcome to my space!
My name is Tonye Barango-Tariah and I am the founder of both Freedom At The Crossroads and more recently, The Home Herb Chef (@theherbyhomechef). Over the last few years, this blog has undergone quite a few changes. To be honest, I have evolved both personally and professionally in order to reflect more of my authentic self and what I hope to achieve in this space.
I’ve now moved my fit-lifestyle content to Freedom At The Crossroads and crafting this space to fit my love of infusing healing herbs and spices with recipes from my homeland as well as other parts of the world! I truly hope to make this space one of inclusion, learning and community. I’m also being much more intentional about exploring and tapping into the ways we can heal and nourish the body by incorporating spices, herbs and techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation.
Fun fact: My favorite uncle was both an African herbalist and naturopathic practitioner before it was a “thing” and I owe my long-ingrained curiosity about herbs and their culinary and medicinal uses, for most of my life!
P.S. As you may have noticed, this site is being transformed as I flesh out my ideas so stay tuned and hop over to my sister site at Freedom At the Crossroads as well as my youtube channel by the same name!
