SHER­RILL BAKER REP­RE­SENTS CNY

An­drea Maranville com­petes on na­tional tele­vi­sion

The Oneida Daily Dispatch (Oneida, NY) - - Front Page -

Sher­rill res­i­dent and Rome na­tive An­drea Maranville will rep­re­sent Cen­tral New York on the na­tional stage as she com­petes on the Great Amer­i­can Bak­ing Show: Hol­i­day Edi­tion.

The six-episode show premieres Thurs­day, Dec. 6, on ABC from 9-11 p.m., but Maranville trav­eled to Lon­don, Eng­land over the sum­mer to record the pro­gram.

“It was an un­be­liev­ably sur­real and over­whelm­ingly ex­cit­ing ex­pe­ri­ence,” said Maranville.

The am­a­teur baker be­gan her bak­ing jour­ney about 10 years ago, and over the years “it just sort of evolved into a pas­sion for bak­ing,” Maranville said. “It’s some­thing I love to do. Peo­ple love to eat what I make and it makes me re­ally happy to share my love of food with peo­ple.”

This is the sec­ond time she’s ap­plied for the show, she said, and she made it into the Top 10 con­tes­tants. They filmed in Lon­don dur­ing Au­gust with judges Paul Hol­ly­wood and Sherry Yard. Emma “Baby Spice” Bun­ton will host the show.

“To have them judge my food was mind bog­gling,” said the Ver­non-Verona-Sher­rill High School grad­u­ate. “It was just amaz­ing. I made great friends with the con­tes­tants. It was just an un­be­liev­able ex­pe­ri­ence. It’s some­thing I’ll

never for­get.”

Maranville was born in Rome and grad­u­ated from VVS. Her fam­ily moved away from the area for about 13 years, but her hus­band re­cently ac­cepted a job at Madison-Oneida BOCES, so they moved back to the area around 4 years ago.

“I con­sider this home,” Maranville said. “To rep­re­sent the small­est city in New York and this area makes me very proud.”
