Lets get Cooking!

You are a Briton, a resident of what these newcomers call the Hyperborean Isles, better known to you as England and Scotland. These strangers, who call themselves Romans, seem friendly enough but they want access to all your fresh and stored food will you share with these armored strangers? What will you cook with what you have?? What might these friendly invaders have that might be of use to you?

You are a proud member of the Roman Legions, deployed to the back of beyond in the Hyberborean Isles, and what little you know of these lands is from old texts from the days of Julius Caesar. You brought some staples with you from home, but know the natives have access to more fresh foods, but they are wary and you are uncertain if their intent is hostile. You know it will be some time before additional supplies can be brought from Mother Roma to these foreign shores. You only have limited stored goods, which you may need if these blue-painted natives turn hostile, and no time to plant crops. Your leader calls for a celebration feast what will you cook with what you have?
