Hi guys,

It’s about burger time, don’t you think? Well, a few people in England thought so.  Earlier this week the world’s first “test-tube burger” was tasted in London by 2 expert burger tasters. The tasters said that the meat, which scientists had grown in a laboratory, was not juicy enough. By this, they meant that it did not have enough fat. Before the tasting, bread crumbs and egg had been added for some flavor, however, salt, pepper and ketchup had not. The burger was fried and eaten on Monday. People working on the burger project hope it can solve our future food shortage. With more and more people on our planet everyday, maybe we’ll all be eating these “Frankenburgers.”

THE GRAMMAR

Past Perfect is used to describe an action before another event in the past.

For example:

  • The tasters said that the meat, which scientists had grown in a laboratory, was not juicy enough.

(Obviously, the scientists must grow the meat first, right?)

  • Before the tasting, bread crumbs and egg had been added for some flavor…

(Also, the ingredients must be added before tasting too! ..had been added =PASSIVE)

  • …however, salt, pepper and ketchup had not.

(For the short form, just use the helping verb, “had“)
