    Don't count this one out BB, I do NOT like anchovies normally, but I was first introduced to Bagna Cauda from a friends mom in the late 60's and it was marvelous. Because it is mixed in with oils, it doesn't have that overpowering anchovie taste and works a a delicious dipping/cooking oil fondue. Belalba (her name from old country of Italy) used to serve this bubbling in hot pots on New Years day and we would "cook" meats in it too. Making me salivate thinking about it...
    I don't know if I would Start with making a full pot yourself, but if you know someone that is, at least give it a taste.

    The anchovy taste is greatly diminished in this. But I think it's added more for the "umami" flavor than a fishy flavor.

    So.........

    What are non-anchovy ingredients that can provide umami to foods?

    Seaweed like kombu(kelp) and nori (sushi wrappers) are used by the Japanese to give that flavor.

    Mushrooms, especially dried mushrooms, can give it too.
