The tour commenced at the hotel lobby where the chefs were welcomed by the General Manager of the hotel Philippe Pellaud and the Executive Chef. The half an hour tour allowed the visiting chefs to see the actual productions and processing of food from the delivery of raw items where procedures are applied to preparations and actual presentations in the restaurants. Chef Harnois also introduced the different sections of the kitchen. Questions were also raised by the students regarding productions, safety and food lifespan.  The tour also introduced the different restaurants of the hotel where each function of the attached kitchens was identified. Among the restaurants highlighted was the Steak and Seafood Al Boom.

Chef Harnois took the students to the marine Museum where he answered all questions raised by the chefs regarding more personal concerns pertaining to his experiences and challenges as a chef. For me, satisfaction is being able to deliver great food and a wonderful dining experience to the diners,” commented Chef Harnois. 

The chefs expressed their gratitude to Chef Harnois for taking time out of his schedule to accommodate them for a tour. Visiting chefs were also taken for a tour of the Marine Museum and one of Kuwait’s landmark; the Al Hashemi Grand Ballroom, Radisson Blu Hotel world record holder in Guinness Book of Record the 'Biggest Dow on dock'.
