Meet Susan Irby

Susan Irby The Bikini Chef

Award-winning TV, Radio Host, Best-selling author, and LIVE event emcee, Susan Irby, creator of The Bikini Chef, is a weight loss, fitness, and healthy lifestyle expert and host of The Bikini Lifestyles Show on Talk Radio 790 KABC.

Southern-born Susan Irby transformed her native Southern cuisine, where “bikini cooking” all began, into flavorful healthy recipes.  As the bikini cooking story goes… “I’ve always loved to cook. I get it from my mother,” shares Susan. “Water skiing til dusk on Lake Martin, Alabama, our family would end up cooking in our bathing suits… bikini cooking was born!” Bikini cooking is a healthy approach to cooking through fresh ingredients like fresh cilantro, basil, mint and other herbs, tangy citrus flavors, and lean proteins like salmon served with fresh vegetables such as red bell peppers, kale, and arugula greens. “I’ve always taken a healthy approach in my cooking classes, and once students learned about healthy recipes and “bikini cooking”, they nicknamed me The Bikini Chef!”, reflects Irby who then created “The Bikini Chef”.  Over ten years ago, The Bikini Chef name stuck and became the foundation Susan’s signature recipes and everything-in-moderation lifestyle.
