Fra i suoi primi ricordi, uno spicchio di pizza rubato in fase di svezzamento e la merenda con pane, ricotta e miele. Romana, classe '95, nutre da sempre grande interesse per i lievitati. Laureata in Scienze Politiche e Relazioni Internazionali, durante gli studi ha collaborato con alcune testate giornalistiche online. Dopo aver lavorato come guida turistica e organizzatrice di eventi in ambito museale, la sua fame di conoscenze enogastronomiche l'ha spinta ad iscriversi al Master in Giornalismo e Comunicazione del Gambero Rosso, grazie a cui ha iniziato a scrivere sul sito web omonimo in una rubrica dedicata all'arte bianca.
