Anchovies contain natural glutamates and therefore have wonderful umami, the fifth taste. This makes it a great wake up for other flavors, when used in moderation. I think anchovies are what makes Wooster sauce so popular.It's weird, you don't see many advertisements for wooster, but everyone has some. I've often wondered if we are hooked on it and buy it without thinking.

BTW, the food with the most natural glutamate is parmesan cheese.....A little on salad or pasta or in sausage (yes, sausage) is all it takes.
