We LOVE Hellish Relish. Made in BC by Heather Bottoms and just like her, it’s sweet, sassy, and a little bad-assy. Hellish Relish is a moreish mixture of fresh seasonal chili peppers and onions, cooked up with mustard seed, vinegar, salt and a sprinkle of sugar to create a sweet and sassy taste sensation that you can enjoy on almost anything! Get ready for a Halloween that is Hellish(ly Relishly delicious)!

Roasted Bacon Steak with Sweet Potato Latke, Spinach, and Hellish Relish

By Chef Deniz Tarakcioglu



  • First squeeze any excess moisture from the sweet potatoes if there is any. In a large bowl combine sweet potatoes, scallions, flour, eggs, black pepper and season to taste with salt.
  • Heat up the vegetable oil to 250F, spoon 50ml of mixture into hot oil and flatten to 3" with a flat spatula. Fry until done and golden brown on both sides. Drain the excess oil on paper towels keep warm.
  • In a medium pot heat up 25 ml olive oil with 50 ml water and cook the spinach covered until just wilted, season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Heat up a large skillet and sear bacon steaks on high heat until nicely caramelized and hot through, add the maple syrup to the pan and reduce with steaks until sticky. Serve with latkes, spinach and hellish relish to taste.
