From Food and Wine:
Buena Park is best known as the home of Knotts Berry Farm, an Old West-inspired theme park less than 10 miles from Disneyland. Now, this sprawling Southern California suburb has an unlikely new restaurant tucked inside a nondescript commercial building from the 1980s. Beyond a pair of heavy doors, the bland facade of The Cauldron Spirits & Brews magically morphs into a rustic, old-world tavern with flickering lights and fragrant French country-style cuisine, complete with an actual Wiccan in the kitchen.
Lara Hanneman wasn’t always a professional chef. With a background in theatrical design, she worked as Creative Director at Knott’s Berry Farm, doing stuff like the park’s hugely successful Halloween Haunt. It was a summer job that turned into a 23-year-long career, but while she loved making haunts and mazes, she always secretly wanted to run her own restaurant. So in 2016, she left her job to do just that. She didn’t go too far, though. The Cauldron is literally across the street from Knott’s—you can even see rollercoasters from the restaurant windows.
