John Harmon brought the Harmon Rocket, a modified sport plane, to the world some years ago—well, technically he brought two. “He built the first one from scratch, starting with an RV IV kit and basically improving it so it performed better and climbed faster. Now, he puts together kits for people to purchase,” said his son, Michael Harmon. While John made himself a name in the flying industry, it took the help of his family members to bring the Rocket Shop Cafe to hungry Bakersfield residents.
Usually grits are served very creamy with tons of butter. This version of a classic brunch food has far less fat than traditional recipes.
