We are so thrilled to be honored by the James Beard Awards as an “American classic.” Ashely is in New York for the ceremony tonight.
NOLA.com has a great article today on Ashley, Hansen’s, opening day, and our James Beard award, full of pictures and videos:
Ashley Hansen grew up inside her grandparents’ snowball stand. She was 15 when she started working for Mary and Ernest Hansen. Now she’s 40. And now she owns Hansen’s Sno-Bliz.
She’s spent her life working the ice shaving machine Ernest Hansen invented in 1934. She knows every nook of the cinderblock stand and can immediately lay her hands on each yellowed clipping praising Hansen’s sweet cups of shaved ice and every faded photograph of the customers who come back year after year to wait on the yellow line.
