QUINCY, MA – Tenure England Vodka partnered with The Townshend restaurant in Quincy Center this summer in a collaboration in honor of the Season 5 premiere of The Great British Baking Show on PBS.
The restaurant, which agreed with the theory that vodka helps make a flakier pie crust, created the Tenure England Cherry Pie which it will feature throughout the season of the popular British show. It is made with Tenure Vodka pie crust and vodka-splashed filling of in-season, local New England cherries, each wedge topped with locally made vanilla ice cream.
The Townshend Chef de Cuisine Collin Davis notes that the pie is inspired by the restaurant’s passion for great spirits and creative modern cuisine. “We know from their correspondence that future president and first lady John and Abigail Adams enjoyed cherry pie during their first dinner in England in 1784,” Davis points out. “We’re happy to carry on that English-American Tradition.
