By default, Gourmet stores its data in ~/.gourmet (i.e. a hidden subfolder of your home directory named .gourmet -- mind the dot). Copying that folder from your old Ubuntu installation to your new partition should give you back your recipes.

I've created a feature request for a plate cost calculating feature at https://github.com/thinkle/gourmet/issues/714
but frankly, I can't tell if we can implement this any time soon as it seems to be rather complex and we're still quite understaffed.
