In January 2013, Christy Shields received a research grant from the CIGC (Comité Interprofessionnel du Gruyère de Comté) to undertake ethnographic research focused on the elaboration and use of Comté's "Wheel of Aromas" as well as the related “jury terroir” (terroir tasting panels).

This research will contribute to on-going academic discussions concerned with the relationship between taste and place, on the one hand, and taste as reflexive practice, on the other. This research (and its funding) grew out of Christy's collaboration with the CIGC (and, in particular, with taste educator Claire Perrot and taste scientist Florence Bérodier) for the summer course/practicum trip Christy designed for graduate students in Global Communications.
