So much depends on ingredients. Rhetoric, allusions, anaphora. Are they put there for the flavor, or for stimulating spice? Do they dramatize a conflict or simmer on the burner to entice the chef with memories of bygone feasts. Too much yeast will spoil the thread of linked associations. More than a salt of remorse will ruin a literary source. Good inkslingers turn over a leaf, tossing word salads without fancying that they came from more than a head of letters. And still you’ll need lots of vinegar to persevere and aid digestion.
