Gouriki Ayame will be playing a chef for the first time in the upcoming TV Asahi Summer 2016 drama "Gurame! ~ Souri no Ryoriban ~" (Gurame!

The drama which is based on the popular manga titled "Gurame! ~ Daisaishou no Ryorinin ~" by Nishimura Mitsuru and Ozaki Mitsuru, features Gouriki as an aloof and talented chef who is the designated cook for the Prime Minister and showcases her culinary talent when the latter holds banquets for politicians and important individuals.

As Gouriki has to cook a wide range of dishes from French cuisine to B-kyuu gourmet, she is undergoing intensive training at a cooking school so as to look convincing for the part. She commented that it was great that she can also improve her own cooking skills through this training.

Co-stars include Matsuo Yukimi, the 2013 Japanese repsresentative for Miss Universe who is making her debut as an actress and plays an employee at the Prime Minister's office, Shinkawa Yua who plays a political reporter and Naito Lisa who plays the Prime Minister's daughter.
