Ignore this if it's off the wall, since I haven't followed this  
thread, but why not just do this:

On the Recipe page:

Rating: (: some directive - new or existing - that presents a summary  
based on the information in the Talk page :)
[[{*$FullName}-Talk|View discussion]] | [[{*$FullName}-Talk? 
action=edit|Add your comments or rating]]

Then on the Recipe-Talk page:

Feel free to add your comments about the recipe below. If you'd like  
to be counted in the rating, follow these guidelines... etc.

A Talk page seems like an appropriate place to put opinions, and isn't  
that what a rating is? This way we can have free form discussion as  
well as a way to present a summary of the sentiment. The rating could  
be a single metric or multiple metrics (opinions of casual users  
versus power users etc.) The only question would be what directive(s)  
to use.
