Well, it would have to be portable, OK to eat all day/night, and have broad appeal. Do people in your area already know the palette of Middle Eastern sweets? That would by my first consideration. Otherwise, maybe a Bolognese Tart or Scappi's quince jelly with rosewater wafers. Most of the really good period food I know depends on being servved fresh and hot. 

With more preparation time to get good at it, air-dried sausages.
