The Prophet Heston (more Hestony related adventures to come, food fans) 
is a big fan of putting star anise in everything (and then taking it out 
at the end). I don't think it's quite Umami but it does add depth.

Speaking of Umami - has anybody played around with MSG? I've been 
sufficently convinced by the good Mr Steingarten that "Chinese 
Restaurant Syndrom" is a big crock so I'm ponderign getting a tub for 
those times (which are admittedly rare) when adding tomatoes, soy, 
worcestershire sauce or parmesan aren't appropriate.

There's stuff above here
