Alma Hetemi Brings European Flavors to Idaho

By: Valon Xoxa    November 25, 2014

There is a food truck stationed along Addison Avenue in Idaho’s Twin Falls where one can get delicious Kebaps, the Balkan beef sausage complete with flat bread, chopped onions, ajvar pepper spread and sour cream. The 3D Euro Food Express is run by Alma Hetemi, a Kosovar who fled the 1999 conflict and found herself a new home in the United States.

Alma and her husband have been engaged in cooking and food services for quite some time, thus making them popular faces for the community of Twin Falls. One can find their truck giving out food throughout various events, from concerts to farmers’ markets. The love for cooking runs on the family. With siblings owning restaurants and the mother acting as a coaching kitchen chef, Alma was conditioned to be a great grill master. Her cooking philosophy is simple: ‘one time you might cook something bad, but the next time it will be better’ claims Hetemi.

However, baking 200 pita breads a week does indicate that Hetemi does not let chance get in her way. The 3D Euro Food Express brings its customers the international flavors, be that Bosnian, Greek or Albanian.
