I just tested (using the largely irrelevant and unused
Cookbook/NestedIf) to see if Rating2 would work on other pages.  This

Rating: {{$FullName}-Rating$Rating2}

works fine.

(Without the nested PTV it would look like this:

Rating: {Cookbook.NestedIf-Rating$Rating2}

which is easier to read but then has to be edited in each recipe individually.)

Thus each recipe author can choose how they want to structure their
recipe documentation - a Talk page, a Ratings page, part of the main
recipe page, etc.  However, I would suggest putting a link for editing
the ratings so users don't have to search around in the source to
figure it out:

[[{$FullName}-Rating|Ratings]]: {{$FullName}-Rating$Rating2}
(''[[{$FullName}-Rating?action=edit|Edit Ratings]]'')

Or the like...

Standardizing things has obvious advantages, but I'm afraid there's as
many opinions how to do it as there are recipe authors...  Personally
I'll probably implement it on a Recipe-Rating page for my recipes.
