Maybe it's not all that hard if you break things down:

If the "very best cheese curds" are shipped all over Canada (Canada = Rather Large Place), then surely they can be shipped from Canada to the UK?  

I'm not saying it would be an inexpensive undertaking, but if this is something you want to experience the "genuine" version of, perhaps it's worth the expense as a one-time thing?

(Perhaps someone who has experience handling [or better yet, shipping] the curds can speak to perishability?)

The gravy, of course, would be a doddle, what with coming in powdered form and combining with water for the desired end product.

Anyway, it's just an idea. [shrugs]
