I have a doubt on Kemetic practices: after you offered the food and drink, are there any ritual gestures that signal the taking of the offerings for consumption by the devotee? Do you make a henu, utter a prayer? I assume how long one waits before eating what's on the shrine is a very relative thing.

Yes, there are prayers exactly for this.  For example "These your Divine offerings revert.  They revert to your servants for life". 
In my daily ritual, I usually just say the "Peret er Kheru" utterance which means "May offerings of every kind come forth like offerings which come forth from the mouth of the God".  To me that says "I give to you.  You give to me.  Time to nom."  This is all in "Eternal Egypt" by Richard Reidy.  These prayers aknowledge the reciporacal relationship between humans and the Netjeru. 

The usual protocol on reverting offerings is that they're consumed immediately after the ritual.  In practice, this doesn't always happen with me.  Sometimes my eyes are bigger than my stomach and I offer too much food.   Grin
