    As a child, Nhan Couch cooked about 300 rice cakes a day on a wood-burning stove to sell in the markets.  It was often difficult to find wood, so she would sometimes use coconut or banana leaves to burn.  "Sometimes banana leaves got dry, the neighbors didnít care if you cut the dry banana leaves.  So I had to sit there, and if you were cooking with banana leaves, you had to keep putting it in, just like paper.  It burned real quick."
