Explanation

If it’s a feast, there are many different foods involved — thus, you need a word that means “mixture” or “multitude.” Olio and mélange both mean “mixture” or “medley.”

Hence olio, mélange are best fit!

Paucity means a dearth or small amount. Olio means a miscellaneous collection. Melange is a diverse mix. Melange is also a unique mix. Pilfer means to steal.

_________ of scents associated with the variety of dishes at the holiday feast.

The right words are medley and melange
