I don' thank the franch in k-beck would taaake de cheese curd from on-tar-eee-o.

What you need to find is someone who makes cheddared cheese. The curds are the balls of base material that are pressed together and aged. You want them as they first come out of the tanks while they still squeak when you bite them.

Perhaps your local cheese monger can help you out. That would be much quicker than trying to get dairy products shipped overseas, especially since that whole mad cow thing.
