The bard set the play in Verona Italy so you could do something Italian, around Shakespeare's time dried fruit compotes were popular, not alot of cakes, as sugar was still dear, barley based desserts, make a rice pudding but use pearl barley and add some dried figs and walnuts.

Ricciarelli (Almond Cookies) were around then although they originated in Sienna rather than Verona. See the recipe at the bottom of page 2 here: http://www.italiantrips.com/italian-recipes-3.htm . They're still popular today; I've bought them often in Verona.

Your butcher would have to do the hard work, but how about a whole roast suckling pig? Theoretically it should be roasted on a spit over an open fire, but how about pinioned on a stick over the barbecue?
