Gayle Okumura Sullivan of Dry Creek Peach and Produce in Healdsburg, one of the last peach farms in all of Northern California, will join Omnivore Books owner Celia Sack in hosting a special tasting of Dry Creek's heirloom yellow and white peaches. They'll also oversee a canning swap of your homemade peach preserves (if you're so inclined with an apron).

Okumura should also be able to give you pointers on what else to do with these beauties, from snappy salsa to tipsy bellinis. The free event takes place on Thursday, September 3rd, from 6 to 7 p.m. at Omnivore Books (3885A Cesar Chavez at Church).
