Erick Erickson, in a Redstate blog I linked to from Andrew Sullivan’s blogsite, writes, “Soon Levi will sell his tell all book, delightfully ignoring awkward questions about his relationship with his sister while relishing in the awkward details of his relationship with Sarah Palin.” I googled “relishing in” and got 85k hits, many of them having the same meaning, “reveling in.” The OED, AHD, and MW do not show anything like “relish in.” This looks like a blend of “relish” and the perhaps less familiar “revel in,” both meaning “enjoy.”
Sounds like a reveling book. Like what women in power wear to bed:http://www.content4reprint.com/women-in-business/what-you-wear-to-bed-is-reveling.htm . And Levi’s not the only one: 44% of Australians would relish in seeing Sarah Palin barbecue, mate:http://www.topnews.in/aussies-would-love-see-sarah-palin-barbecue-mate-275957 .

Another instance: “Ovechkin’s teammates relish in his milestone”
Welcome to the Forum, TalkTheTalk!
Here’s the example I encountered recently:
“Someone said something about my hair at the Oscars that left me in awe. Not because I was relishing in rave outfit reviews, but because I was hit with ignorant slurs and pure disrespect,” she wrote.
