Nice to meet you!

My name is Sherrita “Rita” Magalde. I was born in New York City, raised in North Carolina. During my summer trips to New York to visit family I came to love other cultures and languages. While working at a Greek-owned restaurant in high school and college, my love for Mediterranean gastronomy blossomed. I lived and studied in Quito, Ecuador and Santander, Spain where I perfected my Spanish. I have also traveled to Italy, Mexico, Costa Rica, Argentina, France, the Canary Islands, the Balearic Islands, Jamaica, and the Bahamas. Greece and Turkey are on my current wish list of travel destinations. Considering my passion for baklava, it’s a wonder that I haven’t been there yet!!!

I have lived in Utah since 1996. Before starting my pastry business, I co-owned a travel agency for nine years. It is my love of cooking, traveling, and foreign cultures that has set me on this path of sharing my first love -- baking -- with you. Enjoy my baklava and other treats and please return to see what other eclectic edibles I will be serving up next.

All Of My Delicious And Unique Flavors

I make all of my fruit baklavas with real, fresh, seasonal fruit.  For that reason, you can only purchase some fruit baklavas when the fruit is in season.  Peach, Plum, Blackberry, and Cranberry MUST be ordered in season.

Welcome to Sheer Ambrosia!

As our world changes and we become more of a global society, we must think in terms of being global citizens. Learning about and appreciating the richness in other cultures is fundamental to this endeavor. We envision a world where an “us vs. them” mentality evolves into a “we” state of mind.

Oh my HEAVEN!! This is without a doubt the BEST baklava on the planet! I am totally in love with Sheer Ambrosia Bakery. I was stunned to find out that it comes in so many different, amazing flavors!

We received a box of Sheer Ambrosia walnut baklava when we had a house guest from the Salt Lake City area. The gift was an unexpected surprise but boy were we thrilled!
