Pop some organic bubbly for this corker of a story. French scientists have hit upon the greenest Christmas menu on the planet: A delectable pairing of truffles (the fungus, not the chocolate) and champagne.
"Champagne is the ideal ecological ingredient," Barbara Redlingshöfer, researcher at the ecology-society wing of Inserm, France's agricultural research institute, told The Telegraph. "It is stocked in glass bottles that can be easily recycled—the only problem being the cardboard crates that carry them. "
With barely any ecological side effects, truffles are described as the "perfect organic produce." Whether they're economically sustainable, on the other hand, is a whole 'nother matter. Bottoms up! ::The Telegraph
