French gourmets were celebrating Friday after a wild truffle was discovered for what experts said was the first time ever in Paris. The discovery in a hotel roof garden in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower comes as prices for the aromatic fungus have doubled to more than ($6,000 a kilo. Coming just before Christmas, when truffles are used to flavor such seasonal dishes as foie gras and chestnut soup, it raises the hope of an undreamed-of windfall for the new wave of urban gardeners colonizing city roofs. "The discovery of this wild truffle is a wonderful example of how roof gardens and green roofs have a huge potential for urban biodiversity," said the Museum of Natural History in the French capital, which revealed the find.
